October in Pittsburgh

…is the perfect time to participate in the one running event that will allow you to experience the best of a city in less than 5K!

Bro Council, recently voted “Best Website” by readers of Pittsburgh Magazine, is excited to bring to life the city’s very first Brocathalon which takes place October 12th at 10:00 AM.

BrocathalonIt’s not too late to register!

People from Pittsburgh and around the country will be able to participate in events that showcase what makes the city great…while they run!

Bro Council will be incorporating challenges that highlight the city’s best food and cherished icons. Plus, former Steelers Jeff Hartings and Justin Hartwig will emcee the event and greet runners at the finish line for a post-race party featuring even more of the best food and fun from the City of Champions.

You know what else? You’ll be supporting two great causes as a portion of the proceeds from the Brocathalon will be donated to locally founded charities, including the Ben Roethlisberger Foundation and Urban Impact Foundation.

Ben also has his own coupon code for you to use for a discount. If you register with the code “bigben7” you’ll receive $3 off your registration fee!

This isn’t just any race….while you run you’ll be dodging potholes, painting pop art for charity, being chased by zombies, eating chicken wings – and more!

“I’ve never been about individual goals. It’s all about the team for me. To me, those are things I’ll look back on when I’m done, a little bit after the season, but mostly when I’m done with my career. I’ll look back and think about how great it might have been.” — Ben, when asked about closing in on 30,000 passing yards.



You can watch Ben’s interview with the media this afternoon about the team “being under the radar”, the season opener against the Tennessee Titans, losing Jonathan Dwyer, missing Heath Miller, the excitement of getting back to football, the success of the Pirates this season, and more all right here!
