2017 Pittsburgh Triathlon and Adventure Race
The 2017 event has been postponed due to road construction on the HOV lanes.
PITTSBURGH – P3R and Friends of the Riverfront announced today that the 2017 Pittsburgh Triathlon and Adventure Race presented by First National Bank will be postponed due to road construction on the HOV lanes. The event, which was scheduled for Aug. 12-13, is anticipated to return when the HOV lane construction is complete.
After careful consideration, months of planning and evaluating alternatives, Friends of the Riverfront and P3R determined that the costs of shutting down city roads for the two day event, a necessary requirement to substitute for the closed HOV lanes, would be financially prohibitive for both non-profit organizations.
