Only 9 days until the inaugural Pittsburgh Brocathalon! It's the one running event that will allow you to experience the best of a city in less than 5K. People from Pittsburgh, and around the country, will be able to participate in events that showcase what makes the city great. Plus, there is a post-race party hosted by Steelers Super Bowl Champion Justin Hartwig.
We have a special treat for you too, as we can now officially announce that Mr. McFeely from Mr. Rogers Neighborhood will be appearing at the event as a special host for one of our challenges. It's creatively named "Speedy Delivery with Mr. McFeely", and will allow you to actually receive mail from the world's most beloved mailman. And the Pirate Parrot? He's in too.
