CBRC will kick off the 2022 Pittsburgh Full and Half Marathon training season on December 18. 

Each Saturday, we will offer 3 distances: 4 miles, a mid-range distance for those training for the half, and a longer distance for those training for the full. 

 

We are also looking for motivated runners who would like to lead our pace groups: 8:00 min/mile through run/walk for both the half and full distances. Sign up here.

Our Team CF Partnership

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. The CF Foundation is the world's leader in the search for a cure for CF, and nearly every CF-specific drug available today was make possible with their financial support. 

About Run Team CF: We all run together because the mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation brings us a sense of community, meaning, and motivation to distance running. Pounding the pavement is not easy but the miles we put in help us to live healthier, fuller lives and we want our fellow teammates with CF to feel connected and know that our endurance campaigns will not just help them survive but thrive. 

If you have questions about Team CF or would like to join them, place reach out to Jean Schieman

CBRC is proud to partner with Team CF for 2021. With the cancellation of the in-person 2021 Pittsburgh Marathon, we know this will severely impact their fundraising efforts. Want to help?
