GASP and Athletes United are very excited to announce 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, 2013 at the South Side Riverfront Park, along the Three Rivers Heritage Trail. Click here to see the approximate start/stop and festival location.
The race itself will be a flat, fast course suitable for all ages and skill levels. Runners will enjoy a scenic, fun, and competitive race through one of Pittsburgh’s many dedicated, historic 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. There will be a clean air festival, also held at the South Side Riverfront 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 key environmental/social issues currently affecting the region. Scale the Venture Outdoors Climbing wall, hone your football skills with a member of the Pittsburgh Passion, enjoy tasty grub from the Dozen Bakeshop and Steer N’ Wheel Food trucks, and much more -- we hope to see you there! Sign up for the race and learn more about GASP at www.gasp-pgh.org.
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. We look forward to seeing you on October 19!
Non-runners will enjoy a lively community festival with food, activities, and an educational fun run/walk.
