By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- Runners hit the pavement over the weekend for the Great Race.  Among the many runners was a local lifeguard who came across a woman in need of help along the course.

Kat is the head lifeguard at the city of Pittsburgh's Sue Murray Pool, but her Great Race goal was to outrun her boss.

Her plan took a turn along the Boulevard of the Allies when she came across an elderly woman who was having some trouble.
