Announcing the Clean Air Dash and Festival, brought to Pittsburgh with the support of the Heinz Endowments’ Breathe Project! This 5k race event will be held on October 19th from 9 AM to 1 PM at the South Side Riverfront Park, along the Three Rivers Heritage Trail. Click here to see the approximate start/stop and festival location.
The course is flat and fast, suitable for all ages and skill levels. Runners will enjoy a scenic and fun race through one of Pittsburgh’s most-loved greenways. Take your time and enjoy the course, or race for a personal best time on the mostly-level route. Register here.
Not interested in wearing your running shoes? Fear not, because the race is only half the fun. A festival will also be held at the park. There is no fee to attend the festival, so come and enjoy fun activities, good food, and learn about Pittsburgh’s air quality and other environmental/social issues affecting our region. Jump on the Venture Outdoors climbing tower, practice football skills with a Pittsburgh Passion player, or calm your soul with some yoga while your loved ones run!
Come for the race, come for the festival, come out to support GASP and Athletes United in the fight for clean air. For more information on the festival, please email Sam Thomas. Registration ends at noon on October 18th, so don’t delay. See you on October 19th!
