Steel City: get ready for The City 5K Pittsburgh! It's coming back to Settler's Cabin Park in September 2016. As always, we are focused on showcasing what makes the City of Champions great; the museums, sports teams, food, and yes...even the potholes.
If you're from Pittsburgh, you'll love exploring the best of "The 412" as you run! And if you're visiting, this is the perfect way to experience everything the city has to offer in 5K (or less, if you take the cheater's course).
Check out some of the stations that are setup on the race course below:
Run With The Pirate Parrot
Challenge the best mascot in baseball to a run to start the race. Can you keep up with the Parrot?
Pittsburgh Penguins Training Camp
Iceburgh, the Pittsburgh Penguins mascot, will be on hand to lead you through a training camp obstacle course while you run. Don't worry about bringing your skates, we're ice-free!
Hundred Acres Manor Zombie Run
Did you know the zombie craze got started in Pittsburgh? Now you get to see some of Pittsburgh's best un-dead from Hundred Acres Manor as you run the trails.
Buffalo Wild Wings Challenge
Do you want mild or a mouth-on-fire hot mess? Down some authentic Buffalo Wild Wings for protein to finish off your run.
Eat'n Park Smiley Cookie Challenge
Eat'n Park is a Pittsburgh icon, and now you get to finish off your run with some dessert as their crew hands out delicious Smiley Cookies!
Pittsburgh Pothole Challenge with Steely McBeam
Run through an obstacle course of the Pittsburgh variety. Complete with construction workers yelling at you, and the mascot for the Pittsburgh Steelers directing you.
Speedy Delivery with Mr. McFeely
Welcome yourself to "the neighborhood" with a delivery of prizes from everyone's favorite mailman, Mr. McFeely!
Diehl Tailgaters Shortcut
If you don't like long runs, this is the spot for you! Take a seat and sip a cool drink while a shortcut courtesy of Diehl Automotive knocks off 1K of the 5K. (AKA "The Cheater's Course")
Pop Art Painting For Charity
Let the spirit of Andy Warhol guide you, as you and a thousand other runners help to create a pop art masterpiece that will be auctioned off for charity.
...and some other surprises that will be announced soon!
On top of access to the expanded post-race party featuring food, music, and fun - all hosted by Mikey and Big Bob from 96.1 KISS FM! Plus, Super Bowl Champion Justing Hartwig, Mr. McFeely from Mr. Roger's Neighborhood, and a few surprise guests will be appearing at the party as well.
