Relay Teams


GRAB A FRIEND AND SHARE THE COURSE 

Not ready to run a full 10 miles yourself? The relay is perfect for you! Challenge your co-workers, family, friends or school team to run with you on Saturday, November 2, 2019, and have double the fun! 

You and your teammate are going to be arguing about which leg of the 2019 EQT Pittsburgh 10 Miler you get to run. Those of you running Leg 1 will get to celebrate Pittsburgh on the Military, City of Bridges, Mr. Rogers, City of Champions, and Pickle Miles, while Leg 2 gets to race through the Cookie Table, Pittsburghese, Strip District, Pierogi, and Parking Chair Miles. Which one will you choose?

Relay Shuttles

Getting To the Relay Exchange Area
There will be two buses making only one trip to the relay exchange area. It will begin loading at 7:15 AM in front of the Hard Rock Cafe in Station Square and will depart at 7:30 AM, dropping off runners at 6th Street and Fort Duquesne Blvd, a short walk across the Sixth Street Bridge up to the exchange zone. If you miss the shuttle, you will be responsible for getting to the exchange point on your own. We suggest using the T.

Exchange Zone - Directions From the T-Station
The exchange zone is located on West Commons just after the intersection of Ridge Avenue in the North Side. Here are walking directions from the North Side T Station:
  • After exiting the T Station, turn left onto West General Robinson Street
  • Turn left onto Federal Street
  • Turn left onto South Commons
  • Slight right onto West Commons
  • Relay Exchange Zone 1 will be about 150 yards away on the left.
There will not be a shuttle from the exchange point to the finish line area. However, there will be directional signage to the Finish Line area (approximately one mile) or to the closest T Station, which will also take you to the Finish Line area.

Post-Event Shuttle to Station Square
A free shuttle service will be provided for all runners, spectators and volunteers back to Station Square following the race. Shuttles will pick up on Stanwix Street and Liberty Avenue and will drop off at Station Square. Shuttles will run from 9:00–11:00 AM.
