Heavy traffic expected for Monroeville park race

Terrain 5K

Heavy traffic is expected all day Saturday near a park on Tilbrook Road in Monroeville as the municipality hosts an endurance event.

Monroeville Park West will transform into a Terrain 5K Race from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. The race includes three miles of obstacle courses and mud pits and is expected to attract around 6,500 people, according to a municipal news release.

The entire length of Tilbrook Road will become a “no parking” zone during the event and the police department will monitor the road, which will remain open to traffic.

Councilman Eric Poach was recently appointed as the municipality’s deputy emergency management coordinator. He will work with emergency management personnel, the police department, fire and emergency medical services, the parks and recreation department, public works and Allegheny Health Network to “manage the needs of the expected crowd.”

Based in Phoenix, Ariz., Terrain Race partners with the 1Wish Foundation, a nonprofit organization that helps children with chronic illnesses experience their “one wish.”

Parking for event will cost $20, according to the event website.

Day-of registration for the race is $40.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
