The weekend of events includes a 10K and 5K on Sunday preceded by a Family Fun Run, Tot Trot, and Diaper Dash on Saturday.
“As one of Pittsburgh’s longest-running races, the event has become a ‘can’t miss’ fall event for the entire family,” said Brian Katze, race director. “We are looking forward to once again offering runners of all ages and abilities the opportunity to challenge themselves and earn their medal during this year’s One Great Weekend.”
Registration for the 5K and 10K will have a special one-day pricing of $25 on Feb. 28 and will increase to $30 on March 1. All Dollar Bank Junior Great Race events will be $10. All participants will receive a race shirt and medal for their accomplishments. The event will once again offer the One Great Challenge, which is an opportunity for runners to complete both the 5K and 10K races while earning a bonus medal in addition to the 5K and 10K medals.
This year's Richard S. Caliguiri City of Pittsburgh Great Race is sponsored by Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, Allegheny Health Network and Dollar Bank. Proceeds from the popular fall fitness classic will continue to support amyloidosis research and advocacy. Each year, the Great Race donates $1 from every Great Race and Junior Great Race registration to the Richard S. Caliguiri Amyloidosis Fund, a fund held by the Pittsburgh Foundation that is dedicated to supporting medical research.
