About the event

Join us on Saturday, 3/18 from 8 am - 12 pm as Fleet Feet will be hosting our first 4-hour run/walk challenge at the Shoppes at South Hills Shopping Center.  This will be a professionally timed event however runners and/or walkers of all paces and abilities are welcome.  Fleet Feet will be donating $1 to the American Heart Association for every single lap or loop (approx. 1 mile) that is completed during the challenge along with all race proceeds.  Let's commit to completing those laps and having Fleet Feet make a really large donation!  

Your registration fee includes: 
* A custom Run With Your Heart Race Bib and professional timing during the event 
* A cozy long-sleeve Run With Your Heart Hoodie (image below) 
* A bracelet or necklace and a heart bead for each lap/loop completed 
* A Run With Your Heart red heart stress ball 
* The chance to win amazing raffle prizes for completing 5+ laps/loops during the 4-hour challenge 

Registration is online only and capped at 200 participants.  Runners & walkers of all paces are encouraged including first-timers. 

Bib/Shirt Pickup: 
Thursday 3/16 & Friday 3/17 at Fleet Feet from 10 am - 7 pm 
Saturday 3/18 outside Fleet Feet from 7:15 am - 7:45 am  

An email will be sent to all participants on Wednesday 3/15 with additional details about the event including SWAG pickup and other pertinent details.  Please be sure that you are registering with a valid email address, that you check, or you will risk missing important communications.  

Is there a minimum age to participate?  
While there is no minimum age to participate, parents should be aware that this event will take place around the Shoppes at South Hills Shopping Center which is open to traffic.  Please use your best judgment when registering minors for this event.  

Are strollers allowed?  
We ARE able to accommodate strollers at this event, however, we ask that extreme caution is used particularly on the downhill portion of the run.  Please leave adequate space between your stroller and other runners.  

Do you have a course map?
The specifics of the loop (which is entirely within the Shoppes at South Hills Shopping Center) will be sent to all participants on 3/15.  

I signed up but can't attend, can I transfer my registration or get my money back? 
Since this is a timed event, bib transfers are not allowed but all registered participants will be able to pick up their SWAG bags regardless of whether or not they actually run.  We are unfortunately unable to offer refunds as shirts and other items have already been purchased.  

What if the weather is bad? 
The event will happen rain or shine and we would only not run or delay the start time if there were dangerous conditions such as thunder & lightning.  Any updates due to weather considerations will be sent to all participants via email.  

What if I miss the event, can I pick up my SWAG after?  
Yes, you can, anytime during normal business hours.  We just ask that you please pick it up before March 31st when everything will be purged.  

Where do the race fees go?  Does this event raise money for something? 
This specific event is raising money for the American Heart Association.  All proceeds from the race fees will be donated.  Fleet Feet will also be donating $1 per lap/loop completed during the 4-hour event to the American Heart Association.  

Do you still have a question?  Please email us at [email protected] or by clicking the "QUESTIONS?" button on this page.  Someone will get back to you in a very timely manner.  This method of communication is preferred vs. calling the store as our fitters are usually busy assisting customers and most are not well versed in the specifics of every event.
