A Race for Everyone!

Who we are

Started in 2001 in honor of the race director's younger brother Sean, who lost his battle with leukemia in 1995, the race has helped raise close to $500,000 in the last 16 years in cooperation with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. 

Led by race director Kevin Smith, every March his friends, family and the staff of Pro Bike + Run (formerly Elite Runners & Walkers) along with a small army of volunteers from local youth groups help transform North Park into the course(s) for Just A Short Run.  With distances of 5K, 8.1 Miles, 1/2 Marathon & 30K, this event makes the perfect warm up for the Pittsburgh Marathon and regularly draws runners from 30-40 states hoping to prepare for Pittsburgh's hilly terrain.  

Help us continue the generosity of the event and sign up early.
