What’s the Point .5kSaturday, October 9, 2021 in Pittsburgh, PA at Westinghouse Park, 7051 Thomas Blvd, Pittsburgh, PA
at 12:00 PM
Pre-race events start at 10AM
» $20.00 registration (through 10/5 at 11:59 PM EDT)
The entry fee is $20, which includes a spot in the race, an awesome t-shirt, a euro-style 0.5k sticker for your car, a themed bib, donuts, coffee, and cake. This event will raise money for the beautification of Westinghouse Park, so even if the legs are too rusty to move, come anyway and support our “runners” for a good cause.
● The main race begins at noon, but there is a “Trash Dash” planned for 10:00 AM to tidy up the park before the race. The first five people to pick up the most trash will have their race fees covered.
● Haven’t left the couch in months and are worried you won’t make it? Event sponsor, Mini of Pittsburgh, will provide a Mini-Cooper to scoop up all of the stragglers and drive them to glory! Shhhh… we won’t tell anyone.
Our race for the rest of us is set to begin at 12:00 PM, rain or shine.
The entertainment-filled .5K event features a “challenging” 546* yard “race” for all ages plus:
● A midpoint carbo-loading doughnut station
● Live music to lift your spirits on the “challenging” course
● Yoga mats and nap station (for physically exhausted runners)
● A kids’ arts & craft zone
● A cake celebration for George Westinghouse’s 175 birthday!
