Event Details

One of two half-marathon events that take place in Allison Park’s charming, bucolic North Park, which lies in the northern suburbs of the Pittsburgh metro area, the Chamber Classic Half Marathon is one of the state’s smaller events (it welcomes between 100 and 200 runners each year) and is organized and run by the Northern Allegheny County Chamber of Commerce.

The 13.1-mile race course for the half starts and finishes at the North Park boathouse, following a path that takes participants on a clockwise loop around McKinney Road and around the park’s ice-skating rink, and then proceeds along two five-mile loops around the lake in the center of the park. The race then finishes through the tennis court area, back at the boathouse.

The course’s terrain is described by organizers as mostly flat throughout the race, with the exception of a steep uphill stretch at the start of the course. Parking for the event is available at the park’s Rose Barn parking lot, located on Pearce Mill Road not far from the North Park boathouse. The race starts at 8:00 AM.
