Fleet Feet Sports Pittsburgh proudly sponsoring:
World of Mae 5K Run/Walk & 1-Mile Fun Run
The 2nd annual World of Mae 5k Run/Walk & 1 Mile FunRun takes place in the scenic and historic Hartwood Acres Park during the gorgeous autumn foliage. Both the 5K and 1 mile courses wind along beautiful nature paths through the forest and sprawling fields. ALL terrain is smooth to ensure accessibility for strollers, wheelchairs, wagons, and runners and walkers of ALL paces. Live musicians play every half mile along the course so competitive and leisurely participants alike will feel welcome and celebrated. New for this year: timing chips will be provided for all participants!
World of Mae provides a unique experience with live music, free face painting, free performances by Pittsburgh Magician & Balloon Artist Weird Eric, and free hula hoop troop interactive entertainment, all of which lend to a whimsical atmosphere. A basket raffle and yummy food round out the event. This time of year sparks the magic in all of us so (friendly) costumes are welcome.
All proceeds of this event go to World of Mae, a foundation created to benefit the daily life of Ada Mae Grashow, a little girl living with Phelan-McDermid Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder. Register by September 25th to receive a free World of Mae shirt on the day of the event (October 10th)! This is not a dog friendly event as many of our participants maybe people with sensory sensativities and needs. If dogs do come we ask that your dog stay at a distance and separate from the crowd to maintain a sense of control. Thank you for your understanding:) Please follow Ada's story at facebook.com/worldofmae.home
