First Annual NACIS Fun Run and Walk
'cause you're gonna sit on your butt the rest of the week and listen to people talk atyou about maps and stuff so why not take this opportunity to get out and explore a new city in the best possible way, on foot?

Pittsburgh is a city of steep hills and amazing views, the city of three rivers, the historic gateway to the Midwest and a new life for countless immigrants and fortune seekers, the city of steel mills and blue collar workers and now the host of the best damn cartography conference period.

Did I mention we'll be riding an incline up the hill and running back down? 5.3 or 2.9 miles meet in the marriott lobby at 5:30 PM on Wednesday, After PCD and GDCD.
