What You'll Get
Running, like skee-ball, is an admirable activity whether or not it's done with the intent of winning a Styrofoam-stuffed snake. Hit the pavement with purpose with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get registration in the 5K fun run and full access to Family Fitfest at the Pittsburg Twilight Criterium on May 7 (a $30 value). The race begins at 11 a.m.; however, registration is held between 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
The Pittsburg Twilight Criterium shuffles together a major cycling event, a fleet-footed 5K run, and a wealth of family-friendly FitFest activities that will get the fun flowing. Lace up running shoes or the stolen winged sandals of Hermes and hit the road for five laps around the official PittCrit course, which will be blissfully free of bicycles and tricked-out segways for the morning footrace.
Faster-than-light sprinters who need additional exercise can get in step with a number of fitness classes for adults, such as spin, Zumba, yoga, and more held from noon until 6 p.m. A morning farmers' market, kids' zone, informational booths on wellness and nutrition, and demonstrations of martial arts and dance pepper the day. The U.S. National Cycling Champions take the course later in the afternoon and fill the air with the welcoming smell of burning rubber and eau de Lance Armstrong.
