The South Park Trail Runners is a Facebook group for people interested in running trails in the South Hills of Pittsburgh. The Facebook Group was created to provide a platform for people to schedule runs on South Park’s single track trails and to provide an opportunity for folks to meet and get to know others with the common interest of trail running.
The Facebook Group is a forum to post when you want to run, a time, a location, distance and any other information you think is relative to the run. No membership required just the desire to explore the trails in South Park! We spoke with founders John Warrick and Suzanne Natter, both Pittsburgh area natives and avid trail runners.
