The fastest race in Pittsburgh kicks off at 7 p.m., making it the city’s only nighttime downtown road race. With a variety of one-mile races for participants to choose from, there is something for the entire family. The certified, looped course starts on Penn Avenue in the heart of the Cultural District. Racers then make a turn onto 11th Street, and another quick turn onto Liberty Street for the final stretch. The start and finish lines are only a block apart, so spectators can catch both the beginning and the end—if they move quickly. After the masses finish, runners and spectators can watch the pro athletes battle it out for a hefty purse.
