The City of Pittsburgh's #TOGETHERAPARTPGH VIRTUAL 5K is underway and taking place through Saturday, June 19. The #JuneEdition brings together two beloved June community footraces –- Greenfield Glide and Riverview Park 5K –- in a convenient virtual format.
"The format enables each participant to select and run one course during the two-week period, meaning they can run one of our traditional 5K courses or designate a 3.1-mile course of their choosing," according to Brian Katze, Manager of the City of Pittsburgh Office of Special Events, which organizes the virtual race in partnership with the community footraces. "The 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.”
Registration remains open through June 19 at www.pittsburghpa.gov/events.
Cost is $15/person to register and includes a commemorative race shirt sent via mail. All proceeds support the community organizations that traditionally benefit from the City of Pittsburgh’s community footrace series.
