Parking: Participants can park in designated parking at RMU Island Sports Center or across the street at Paradise Island Bowl and Point Spring & Driveshaft Co.
What time should I arrive? Plan to arrive about an hour before the race so you can be sure to find a parking spot, use the restroom and familiarize yourself with the start line.
When can I pick up my shirt and bib? You can pick up your shirt and bib early at RMU Island Sports Center – Main entrance of hockey rink (this is different than past years due to a change in our race timing company):
Friday, September 7th, 6:00pm-8:00pm
Saturday, September 8th, 10:00am-5:00pm
If you cannot make it during the above times, you can simply pick up your shirt and bib on race day starting at 7:30am.
If I want to run with a pace group from Steel City Road Runners, how will I find them? Pacers will be on-site that morning, near the start line. You can identify them by their hand-held signs that list the pace times.
Will there be activities before the race? Yes! Allow additional time before the race and bring cash so that you can participate in our huge auction that will include over 60 baskets and prizes! We will also be holding a 50/50 raffle from the entire weekend of events which, in the past, has totaled over $1,000! Get your photo taken with our special guest before the race – the Pittsburgh Penguins Iceburgh! Also, enjoy some cool tunes that our DJ will be playing.
Will there be refreshments after the race? Yes! Participants will enjoy pizza, water, Gatorade, bananas, smiley cookies and more after the run.
How can I find my results? After the race, participants can view their results by visiting Miles of Smiles Timing Services website: https://www.smileymiles.com/2018Results.html
