The need to know

Learn everything there is to know about the adventure of the Oyster in the Official Race Info Packet. Also check out which Oyster division is best for you.



The Pittsburgh Oyster is proud to have the Pennsylvania Environmental Council as its beneficiary. The Pennsylvania Environmental Council (PEC) connects people with their environment in many ways, including through the development of greenways, land- and water-trails, and improvement and conservation of riverfronts. These activities connect Pennsylvania’s open space, natural landscape features, scenic, cultural, historic and recreational sites, and urban and rural communities. PEC is a statewide organization that brings people, government, and business together to find real world solutions for environmental challenges, to bring about sustainable communities, protect our water resources, and address energy and climate issues.
