J. R. Taylor Memorial 5k race and 2-mile walk
J. R. Taylor Memorial 5k race and 2-mile walk: race description
This pleasant 5k run/walk benefits the Bethel Park section of the Montour Trail in Pittsburgh's South Hills. It begins just south of the trail's J. R. Taylor Memorial Bridge over Clifton Road. Runners travel the flat, crushed limestone trail to a turnaround point before Brush Run Road, then return north and cross the J. R. Taylor Bridge to the finish line. The race's modest size and the trail's comfortable width permit walkers to start behind the runners and obtain an official time if they wish.
