Friends of the Riverfront Postpones 2018 Pittsburgh Triathlon
Friends of the Riverfront will once again partner with P3R to host a 5k and 10k trail run event on August 11th
PITTSBURGH – Friends of the Riverfront announced today (13 Mar) that the 2018 Pittsburgh Triathlon and Adventure Race presented by First National Bank will be postponed for a second year due to road construction on the HOV lanes.
The Pittsburgh Triathlon was created by Friends of the Riverfront in 1988 as a fundraising event that showcases recreational use of the rivers and trails. The event has featured a swim and kayak portion in the Allegheny River, a bike course on the HOV lanes and a final run course on the Three Rivers Heritage Trail.
Honoring this tradition, and in an effort to reimagine the event moving forward, Friends of the Riverfront will be hosting a stakeholder working session later this spring to determine what the future event will look like.
“While Friends of the Riverfront continues to evolve as an organization, we recognize that our events and programming must evolve as well to hopefully meet people where they are”, stated Valerie Beichner, Executive Director of Friends of the Riverfront. “We are deeply committed to the Southwestern Pennsylvania region and the role the Three Rivers Heritage Trail and Three Rivers Water Trail play in enhanced quality of life.”
Friends of the Riverfront will once again partner with P3R to host a 5k and 10k trail run event on August 11th. All those interested in receiving further information once released can contact Friends of the Riverfront at email@example.com. All proceeds benefit Friends of the Riverfront and ongoing stewardship activities of the Three Rivers Heritage Trail and Three Rivers Water Trail.
