Rules of Engagement
To earn your bad-ass NPTR patch, you must:
1. Run 100 cumulative miles of trail in North Park anytime between May 1 and July 4.
2. Have fun while keeping a social distance from other runners; follow state and local guidelines.
Note: For easy access to North Park Trails, check out our website: Where We Run.
This event benefits The Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank.
I want my patch!
Once you've completed your 100 miles, you have two options.
Option 1: Patiently wait to get your patch. Plans are underway for a July 4th NPTR Birthday Celebration in North Park. At this event, you may pick up your patch. By choosing this option, you maximize your donation by avoiding the costs of mailing the patch.
Option 2: Kindly ask us to mail your patch. Please note: we rely 100% on volunteers. Your patience is appreciated.
Why are we hosting this event?
The objective of this event is two-fold. We are aiming to:
1. Provide an activity that is safe and healthy for our runners during the quarantine. With group runs cancelled, many of us feel a void as well as a dip in motivation. We hope this event serves as a distraction from the chaos and uncertainty we face today as well as an incentive to hit the trails and stay fit.
2. Help the needy by donating all proceeds to the Pittsburgh Food Bank. Low-income communities are more likely to be exposed to the virus and have higher mortality rates. Bottom line: families and individuals who were food-insecure before the pandemic are suffering exponentially during this time of crisis. Please note: 100% of the proceeds will go to the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank, minus mailing costs if you choose to have your patch mailed to you.
