The 2015 Great Race Pittsburgh has been an amazing event and we want to thank those who participated! The weather couldn’t have been any better and we had over 1,000 racers show up to run for a great cause. We had participants from all over the United States and even internationally. The great race pittsburgh 2015 is the 3rd annual running of the Great Race Pittsburgh and we hope to see you in 2016! The Great Race Pittsburgh 2015 was a phenomenal day for us.
Though it was an amazing event and a great day for all, we would like to apologize about some of the issues that were present on the course during the run. The course was not properly marked at many points which caused other participants to get lost or get hurt. Over 40 people had problems with the proper marking of the course causing many injuries in this year’s race .
Here’s What People Are Saying About The Great Race Pittsburgh :

The race was great and I’m so glad I did it again this year. I liked how you could ask for help from other runners to get through any challenges or puzzles.

9. The course was very fun and exciting!
I really liked the course because it was fun to be able to ask for directions from other runners when you got lost. It also made me feel like we were all in this together, no matter where we came from in the pack or what time we started out at (which I thought was super cool!)

10. I loved the whole race experience.
This was my first time running, and I have done a lot of walking in my life, so it wasn’t easy. There were many times where I thought “Next year, maybe this will be easier than walking”. But I pushed myself through and by the end, I was happy that I finished. It took a lot out of me to finish this race, but in the end it was all worth it. The course is very hard but it’s up to you how far you want to go. If you push yourself and your own limits then by the end of the day when you are finished, you feel confident that you did your best and overcome those challenges yourself.
