Okay, here’s what we know: There’s a surprise 5K popping-up in Pittsburgh . It’s set to happen today, Thursday, July 7 at 7 p.m. Oh, by the way, it’s free.
Our friends over at the Steel City Road Runners just released all of the details! It’s all part of their plan for a summer of Flash 5Ks popping up all over Pittsburgh.
Sounds like fun, right? Of course, it does. You get to show up to a surprise race, hang out with other folks trying to get fit, or become a better runner. And best of all it’s totally free. Yeah, that’s pretty great.
Alright, now that you know about this secretive race series, here’s what you need to do if you plan to participate. First, pay attention to the pop-up dates – there will be one race each month during the summer (of course we’ll keep you in the loop!). Once you know the date, have your running gear ready, because the Steel City Road Runners won’t release the location until the day of the race. After they do, you have to hustle over to the surprise location in a hurry to be there in time to take off with the starting gun.
So, one more time, in case you’re still not sure about this whole surprise race thing, here’s what you need to know:
