Open to runners of all ages and abilities, the race features different waves for recreational, competitive and professional runners. The USATF-certified, u-shaped course takes participants through the Cultural District in downtown Pittsburgh.
The American Development Pro Mile features $25,000 in guaranteed prize money that goes 10 deep with each race champion awarded $5000. The GNC Live Well Liberty Mile is also part of the Bring Back the Mile Grand Prix Tour 2016.
