Our Story

Pittsburgh Running Tours, established by Trista Yerks in 2013, is an active way to explore Pittsburgh for both locals and visitors alike. A self-proclaimed “Pittsburgher by choice”, Trista moved to Pittsburgh in 2012 from Minneapolis and immediately fell in love with the city. Wanting to find a way to share her passion for both running and Pittsburgh with others, she started Pittsburgh Running Tours with one route – North Shore. Since then, Pittsburgh Running Tours has flourished and currently has 9 different routes, offered year-round any day of the week. Custom and private tours are available, as well as special tours offered in partnership with local breweries, yoga instructors, and other tour operators.
