NEW DAY, SAME RACE!
SATURDAY, SEPT. 29 — 11:00 a.m.
Point State Park, Downtown Pittsburgh
Junior Great Racers — 12 years old and younger — will enjoy fun and fitness at the 23rd annual Dollar Bank Junior Great Race. Parents can join their children for the Family Fun Run or cheer on little ones in the Tot Trot and Diaper Dash.
Family Fun Run
This event is designed for children aged five through 12 who are able to complete the 1-mile distance on their own. Parents or guardians are encouraged to run alongside their children and do not need to register to do so.
This event is for tykes ages four and under who are capable of running or walking the distance. Watch the adorable trot of kids running down a 50-yard walled chute to their own finish line as an announcer officiates the race.
Can't quite walk yet? Not a problem. The Diaper Dash allows for the youngest contestants to dash across protective mats. So if your child is starting to walk but isn't too solid on his/her feet, this is a safe bet.
$10/child in advance; $12/child day of event
