The race route will:

These are the approximate timeframes for the road closures in connection with the race, according to P3R.

More than 3,500 racers from 36 states and four countries are expected to participate in the race in-person and virtually, according to P3R.

Each mile will have a different Pittsburgh theme allowing runners to explore the many unique Pittsburgh traditions including parking chairs, pierogi, cookie tables, pickles and "Pittsburghese."
