Run Around the Square–Women’s Winner

For our second full year in Pittsburgh we decided to become more involved in the community and served on the Board of Directors for Run Around The Square. We met a lot of new people and for the first time we helped the race to arrange for a professional race photographer.

After watching the winner cross the finish line, I wondered if they would put up a finish line tape for the first woman to cross the finish line. To this date a woman has never bested a man in marathon or long distance races although each year the gap narrows. As I watched I saw the race crew get ready and watched as he carefully chose the right moment to dart across the course to set the tape for the first woman to finish and provide for her the same moment that the male finisher experienced. The sequence below tells the story.

Run Around the Square Winner

For our second full year in Pittsburgh we decided to become more involved in the community and served on the Board of Directors for Run Around The Square. We met a lot of new people and for the first time we helped the race to arrange for a professional race photographer.

There are really two races. The first is a fun run and people walk with their small children and pets. The second is a timed 5K race and it all ends with a giant after party in Frick Park. It is a wonderful community event that raises money for Regent Square. It is the only race I know of that provides professional musicians at the water stops and free beer and hot dogs from D’s Six Pack and Dogz (The best hot dogs in the city!) Not only that but most of the Race is through our neighborhood’s beautiful Frick Park.

I was supposed to walk in the race with my wife, but I didn’t. I sprained my knee and couldn’t answer the bell so I hung out with the race photographers at the finish line.. You can see and purchase thousands of pictures from the race by clicking here.
