REGISTER TODAY FOR PITTSBURGH "FALL FITNESS CLASSIC" -- THE 37th RUNNING OF "THE GREAT RACE"
register early for Sept. 28 race -- cap of 16,000 runners/walkers set for 2014

Register today for the 37th running of the Richard S. Caliguiri City of Pittsburgh Great Race presented by Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield – which will take place on Sunday, Sept. 28, 2014, along a 6.2-mile course from Frick Park to Downtown Pittsburgh.

The Great Race remains one of the City’s greatest events, attracting more than a third of a million participants over the past 36 years.  While The Great Race was established in 1977 as a 10K “fun run” by the late Mayor Richard S. Caliguiri, it has grown to include a 5K run/walk, running clinic, two-day exposition and children’s race.  This variety of events allows individuals of all ages and fitness levels to take part in Pittsburgh’s fall fitness classic.

Last year’s field of 15,500 runners and walkers set a new record for the race.  This year, race organizers are expanding the number of participants but will place a cap of 16,000 runners and walkers for the 2014 race.

“EARLY BIRD” DISCOUNT OFFERED TO FIRST 6,000 TO REGISTER
“Early Bird” pricing – $25 (or 2 for $40 discount) – will be available to the first 6,000 runners and walkers who register.  Only the first 6,000 individuals to register will receive the discount; all others will pay $33/person to register.
