See Which Popular Pittsburgh 5Ks are Going Virtual
Runners can race through parks and neighborhoods on their own.
While social distancing guidelines have put neighborhood 5K races on hold, you can still experience some of Pittsburgh’s notable races on your own.
Pittsburgh’s #TogetherApartPGH virtual 5K race is partnering with five traditional neighborhood races: the Brookline Breeze, Greenfield Glide, Historic Hill 5K, Regent Square Run Around the Square and Riverview Park 5K.
“The virtual race format enables each participant to run one of our traditional 5K courses or designate a 3.1-mile course of their choosing and then upload a time to the race website,” Brian Katze, manager of the city’s Office of Special Events, says in a press release.
It is $15 to register with proceeds going to the neighborhoods. Participants will also receive a commemorative race shirt. The races need to be completed from July 15 through Aug. 15. Register here.
“The virtual race’s flexible format enables each participant to pick a convenient date to run and allows each runner to pass familiar sights along a favorite course or to try a completely new route to discover a new area of the city,” Katze says in a press release.
