Pittsburgh — The Richard S. Caliguiri City of Pittsburgh Great Race presented by Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield is launching a program to encourage children to run a summer community footrace and then receive free registration to The Great Race 5K in the fall.


The “Highmark Bright Blue Futures Youth Racers” program invites children to take part in the 2024 City of Pittsburgh Community Footrace Series by running one of the following 5K races:  Greenfield Glide on June 2, Brookline Breeze on August 10, Historic Hill 5K on August 17, and Run Around the Square on August 24.


Each youth 6 to 17 years old who completes one of these 5K footraces receives free registration to the Great Race 5K taking place September 29, courtesy of Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield.
