The Run Around the Square, in its 34th year, is now the largest neighborhood footrace in Pittsburgh.
The Run Around the Square is operated as a fundraiser for local nonprofits supporting the Regent Square Community. In 2013, the race donated $32,000 to local nonprofits. Over the last five years, the Race donated $86,550 in total.
We have partnered with Virtual Race Bags to produce a ‘virtual goodie bag’ in an effort to ‘go green’ and provide additional benefits to our participants. As a participant of this year’s event you will receive a ‘Welcome’ email invitation to the Virtual Goody Bag prior to the event giving you access to the bag. In the bag you will find an array of valuable information including exclusive offers, coupons, giveaways and messages from our sponsors.
But wait, there’s more! After the event, participants will receive a ‘Thank You’ email invitation to visit their bag and have a final opportunity to take advantage of the offers and goodies before the bag closes – as the bag is only available for a limited time. So watch for the Virtual Race Bag and Get Your Green On!
Thank you to all the participants, volunteers and sponsors for making this race so successful!
