Westinghouse Park - North Point Breeze


Fireman Creative is hosting its first annual "What's the Point 5K", a half kilometer run/walk/crawl/hobble/ride on Sunday, September 16, 2018.  A "race" for the fit, unfit, and everyone in between!  This all-participant fun run is designed to  get everyone laughing.  Grab your dusty running shoes and meet us there!  Pre-race trash dash at 10 a.m. The race will start and finish at Westinghouse Park in Pittsburgh, PA and is set to begin ​at 12 p.m. rain or shine.  All race participants and supporters are invited back to the Evergreen Cafe at 7330 Penn Avenue for our after party.  The entertainment-filled .5K event features a challenging 546 yard "race" for all ages plus: a midpoint carb-loading donut station, live music to lift your spirits on the "challenging" course, yoga mats and nap station (for physically exhausted runners), a taco truck, sno-cones, and coffee to restore your energy after the race, a kid's arts & craft zone, and a beer filled after party (for hydration purposes, of course).  Costumes are welcome and encouraged, as are four legged participants (must be on a leash).

The entry fee is $10 in advance, $15 at the door, or $25 if you paid early which includes a spot in the race, an awesome t-shirt, a euro-style 0.5k sticker for your car, a themed bib, a 2018 membership in Point Breeze North Community Group, donuts, coffee, and an invitation to the after party at the Evergreen Cafe. 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.
