Run Around the Square is the largest neighborhood race in Pittsburgh. We have two events on Race Day, a 5K Race and a 1.5 Mile Run/Walk. Please see below for details and to register. All registrations must be completed in advance and online. There is NO walk-in or race day registration.
Run Around the Square is proud to be a USATF sanctioned race. In accordance with USATF rules, participants who receive assistance of any kind during the race are disqualified. Therefore, awards will be given only to participants who have completed the entire course on their own.
Please Note: Due to the number of runners and the nature of the course, dogs and strollers are NOT permitted on the 5K race. Dogs and strollers are welcome on the 1.5 mile fun run.
The 5K will have staggered starts. Please follow the instructions of our Officials at the Start Line!
Most of the first mile winds through Regent Square streets with plenty of warm, friendly cheers. The remainder of the race is through Frick Park’s cross-country trails, with the final stretch heading down the Falls Ravine Trail and ending in Fern Hollow. Race start time is 9:00 a.m. Please see the map for an outlined route.
