In case you missed it, we shared on May 15 that the 2020 Richard S. Caliguiri City of Pittsburgh Great Race and Dollar Bank Junior Great Race are going VIRTUAL as part of the city's efforts to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The Great Race is one of Pittsburgh’s greatest traditions, and we’re excited that we’re able to continue that tradition this year in a new format!
Registration just reopened for the VIRTUAL Great Race and Dollar Bank Junior Great Race, and we want YOU to join us in keeping this Pittsburgh tradition going! If you sign up to run with us virtually, we’ll mail you your finisher medal (which you’ve earned!) and your race shirt. We promise to be there with you virtually and cheer you on while you run! Be sure to tag us on social media and use the hashtag #MYGreatRace so we can celebrate your race with you.
You can complete your race whenever and wherever you wish, but we will officially host the Virtual 2020 Great Race and Virtual 2020 Dollar Bank Junior Great Race throughout the entire month of September! Beginning September 1, you will be able to submit your race time (although this is not required) via the Race Roster website anytime throughout September. Stay tuned to your email and our social channels!
As an extra — and BRAND NEW — challenge, we invite YOU to participate in both the 5K and 10K in the month of September! One GREAT Challenge participants will earn the Great Race tech shirt, the 10K medal, the 5K medal, the One GREAT Challenge medal, as well as a One GREAT Challenge t-shirt. That’s THREE medals and TWO shirts!
Plus, $5 from each One GREAT Challenge registration will be donated to support amyloidosis research. Each year, the Great Race donates $1 from every Great Race and Dollar Bank Junior Great Race registration to the Richard S. Caliguiri Amyloidosis Fund, a fund held by the Pittsburgh Foundation that is dedicated to supporting medical research, and One GREAT Challenge participants will contribute even more to this important cause.
When signing up for your race in Race Roster, you will have the option to add-on One GREAT Challenge during the registration process for just $25. If you are already registered, you can log in to your Race Roster account and edit your registration to add One GREAT Challenge.
If you are already registered for the 2020 event, you will have two options:
1. The first is to run virtually. To take advantage of this option, all you need to do is run your race wherever you want whenever you want. We’ll mail you your finisher medal (which you’ve earned!) and your race shirt.
2. Your second option is to receive a refund of your registration. If you decide that you do not want to participate virtually, the City of Pittsburgh is pleased to offer you the opportunity to request a refund of your registration fee (less any processing fees or referral fees already refunded). While it is not our policy to offer refunds, we are making an exception for those who do not want to participate virtually. We completely understand, and we hope to see you at the start line in 2021.
Any runner who wishes to have their race registration refunded will need to access their Race Roster account and edit their event registration no later than 11:59 p.m. on Friday, June 5, 2020:
Please note that the refund will be in the amount originally paid, less any processing fees and/or referral earnings already refunded. If you are registered for more than one event, you will need to select a refund for each specific event (or you can choose to do one virtual and receive the refund for the other). If you registered more than one family member through your account and wish to receive a refund for everyone, you will need to request a refund for each individual person for each individual event.
You can expect to receive your refund no later than June 19, 2020.
If you do not request a refund by June 5, your registration will automatically be switched to the virtual event.
We are here for our runners! If you can’t find what you’re looking for, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you have.
