About Pittsburgh Triathlon & Adventure Race
The Pittsburgh Triathlon was created by Friends of the Riverfront in 1998 as a fundraising event that showcases recreational use of the rivers and trails. The Pittsburgh Triathlon, which is produced by P3R, includes the USA Triathlon-sanctioned bike/run/swim event as well as the Adventure Race, a bike/run/paddle in either a kayak or canoe. A Triathlon Sprint—half the distances of full-length Olympic-distance triathlon competition—also is available to participants. The swim portion of the Triathlon is held in the Allegheny River, assuming conditions of the Friends of the Riverfront River Contact policy are met. The Pittsburgh Triathlon has achieved Green Certification by Athletes for a Fit Planet each year since 2010.
