  • Fineview Stepathon
    The Stepathon Challenge, first weekend of October, is a rugged 5-mile run and hike through Fineview, Pittsburgh's North Side hilltop neighborhood. Up and down huge stairways and hills, through the woods and along residential streets, the Challenge ends at the scenic Catoma Street overlook.
  • Pittsburgh Marathon
    The Marathon is back and you can walk a half marathon or a full marathon. In May.
  • Pittsburgh Race for the Cure
    Mother's Day (May). From the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. The Race features a five-kilometer run/walk and a one-mile fun walk; and attracts thousands of participants of all ages and abilities.
  • Step Trek
    For many years, the South Side Slopes sat between the aerial serenity of the Passionist Monastery and the hellish fire of the mills below. The elevation between the two is over 350 feet, but their history is several thousand stories. Join them each autumn for an urban hike through this historic neighborhood, exploring how Pittsburgh lived, prayed and played from the hillside perspective of the South Side Slopes.
