#TOGETHERAPARTPGH Virtual 5K Race: July 15 – August 15

Lace up your running shoes and get ready to take part in Pittsburgh’s newest outdoor adventure!

#TOGETHERAPARTPGH VIRTUAL 5K will showcase Pittsburgh’s scenic parks and diverse neighborhoods by bringing together five beloved community footraces — the Brookline Breeze, Greenfield Glide, Historic Hill 5K, Regent Square’s Run Around the Square, and Riverview Park 5K – in an exciting new format.

Run a 5K course – either a traditional course or one you develop yourself – during “Race Month” of July 15 – August 15. Then report your time and receive a commemorative race shirt via mail.

Registration for this new virtual race is $15/person. All proceeds will support the same communities that traditionally benefit from the City of Pittsburgh’s community footrace series.

Register today at www.pittsburghpa.gov/events.


Ronald Street Garden Ready for “Green Phase”

Thanks to GCA’s Public Spaces Committee the Ronald Street Garden is green and ready to bloom just in time for the COVID-19 GREEN phase beginning tomorrow, 5 June 2020, in Allegheny County.

Volunteers prepared the garden last weekend while practicing social distancing. What a great job they did!

A big Thank You to everyone involved.
