Richard S. Caligiuri Great Race
Community Footraces

Join one of Pittsburgh's Greatest Traditions!

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 300,000 individuals 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 one of the largest 10K races 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 participants receive a T-shirt and are eligible to win prizes at the post-race raffle at the finish line in Downtown Pittsburgh.
