Run Through the ‘Woods’ is an annual fundraiser for Hoover Elementary School Parent Teacher Association (PTA) in the Mt. Lebanon School District, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The run/walk is held the first Saturday of June and takes place at the elementary school. The course goes through the scenic (and hilly) Cedarhurst Manor neighborhood of Mt. Lebanon hitting many of the ‘wood’ streets. The event is competitive and fun for all ages and abilities. We offer a 5K and a 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk. Age group awards as well as finisher medals, fun raffle baskets, and snacks at the finish line!
Hoover Elementary PTA strives to enhance the school experience for all students. The purpose of this event is to raise money to support educational programs throughout the year. We thank you for your support!

Walking to the start is a great warm up! Parking is limited due to the streets being closed for the race. We suggest those who are close enough, walk to the start and allow parking for our friends who are coming from further away. There is a lower Teacher Lot off of Robb Hollow that is first come first served with limited spots. Road will close at 7:45am Check out the course map and park on the outskirts – Sylvandell, Craigview, Robb Hollow (from Sylvandell and lower), Sandrae, Lakemont to name a few… or carpool from Dixon field at the bottom of Greenhurst.
