Westinghouse Park What’s the Point 5K
Our race for the rest of us is set to begin on Saturday, October 1, 11:00 AM, rain or shine.
Register for the race NOW at http://getmeregistered.com/WhatsThePoint
The entertainment-filled .5K event features a “challenging” 546* yard “race” for all ages plus:
- A midpoint carbo-loading doughnut station
- Live music to lift your spirits on the “challenging” course
- Yoga mats and nap station (for physically exhausted runners)
- Giant puppets
- Marching band
Costumes are welcome and encouraged, as are four-legged participants (must be on a leash).
COVID-19 precautions will be taken and updates will be sent through our website and social media channels.
The entry fee is $20, which includes a spot in the race, an awesome t-shirt, , donuts, coffee. This event will raise money for the beautification of Westinghouse Park, so even if the legs are too rusty to move, come anyway and support our “runners” for a good cause.
All ages are welcome, and there will be prizes for infant, toddler, kid, adult, and golden divisions.
The main race begins a little after noon, but there is a “Trash Dash” planned for 10:00 AM to tidy up the park before the race.
Haven’t left the couch in months and are worried you won’t make it? Event sponsor, Mini of Pittsburgh, will provide a Mini-Cooper to scoop up all of the stragglers and drive them to glory! Shhhh… we won’t tell anyone.
* It’s actually closer to 547 yards, but we didn’t want to scare anyone off.
