The 6th annual Yinzer 5k and Lil' Yinzer Fun Run encouraged runners to dress up in ways that represent Pittsburgh to them - anything from black and gold to representing their favorite Pittsburgh landmark.

The Pittsburgh Party Pedaler, which featured KDKA's Celina Pompeani and friends, cycled around the event. After the race, pierogis, kielbasa and sauerkraut, ham barbecue, ice cream and a cookie table were available.
