Each year on the last Sunday of September, the starting gun sounds for a world-class road race that has become a true Pittsburgh tradition for the past 41 years. The Great Race – established as a 10K race by the late Mayor Richard S. Caliguiri – has attracted more than a quarter million participants since 1977. Over the years, this popular fall fitness classic has grown to include a 5K run/walk, running clinic, two-day expo and children’s race…with more than 16,000 individuals taking part in these various activities annually.
Your streets. Your stride.
Begin your run on Shelter Island, feel the fresh air on your face as you cruise down Harbor Drive and finish with a celebration at Waterfront Park.
On race day, the road is yours and so is the reason. See you on November 10th.
Founded by Olympic Gold Medalist Joan Benoit Samuelson in 1998, the TD Beach to Beacon 10K Road Race, held in Samuelson’s hometown of Cape Elizabeth, Maine, has become one of the top 10K road races in the U.S. Samuelson retained Dave McGillivray and his team at DMSE to serve as the event’s Race Director and has since called McGillivray "the most organized and gifted race director in the world."
