This race began as the original Pittsburgh Marathon and has evolved into one of the best warm-up races used by many Pittsburghers, and now many from outside the region, to prepare for the spring marathon season. It also makes a great prep race for Just A Short Run – 1/2 marathon/30K also held in North Park the last Saturday of March.
Course is on a paved asphalt road with mildly rolling hills. Course management provided by Elite Runners & Walkers.

We will run no matter what, unless the police tell us otherwise due to an extreme weather condition. FYI, in 2011 over 6 inches of snow fell overnight and the park personnel had the roads perfectly clear for the race. We will run, so register and show up, we will be there!
No parking along Pierce Mill Road except in designated Lots. Also no parking in Boathouse parking lot morning of event. Shuttle Busses will run from the Pool, Spillway, and ice arena lots. Please CARPOOL and ARRIVE EARLY and park in the shuttle lots!
