The Fourth Petite Track Meet
The Pittsburgh Pharaoh Hounds hosted the Fourth Petite Track Meet (sponsored by Pro Bike + Run)!
It was a great opportunity to come run your PR or do a time trial for the Liberty Mile in a variety of races -- from 100 m to 5000 m -- at a convenient location at Schenley Park.
Some photos are here (thanks to Mike McNeil!).

You will NOT be able to enter the park from Squirrel Hill (Hobart St, Bartlett St) or from CMU (Panther Hollow Rd).
