Last year's race sold out so register early! The 2014 cap is set at 16,000 runners and walkers.

On the last Sunday of September, the starting gun sounds for a world-class 10K and 5K road race that has become a true Pittsburgh tradition. More than one-third of a million runners and walkers have participated in the region’s fall fitness classic since Mayor Richard S. Caliguiri established the event in 1977 as a community "fun run."

Since then The Great Race, presented by Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, has grown to become Pennsylvania’s largest 10K—and the 10th largest 10K race in the nation!

A 5K run—and fitness walk—now provides an opportunity for people of all ages and fitness levels to take part in the festivities on Great Race Sunday. All registered runners and walkers receive a T-shirt and are eligible to win prizes at the post-race raffle at the finish line in Downtown Pittsburgh.

The Junior Great Race officially kicks off "Great Race Week" in Pittsburgh!

The 19th running of the Dollar Bank Junior Great Race literally begins with a bang as costumed reenactors from the Fort Pitt Museum provide a volley of musket fire to start the One-Mile Family Fun Run in Point State Park. Younger children participate by running in the 50-Yard Tot Trot or the Diaper Dash. Children of all ages enjoy meeting with favorite mascots, clowns, face painters and musical entertainers.

All registered children receive an official Junior Great Race T-shirt and a Junior Great Race medal for their efforts. They also receive a goodie bag and have a chance to win prizes in the post-race raffle. Late registration and packet pick-up is available on race day.
