Police want to talk to the man to see if he is a naturalist or if something sinister is going on, KDKA reported.
KDKA is reporting that a naked man has been spotted strolling the trails of North Park. Police would like to talk to the man to see if he is a naturalist or if something more sinister is going on, KDKA reporter John Shumway said. The man has been spotted on trails in the far eastern end of North Park, near Hemlock Apartments in Hampton, according to KDKA. The TV station interviewed a woman who was walking her dog about 10 a.m. Wednesday when she “saw someone out of the corner of my eye. I looked over and there was an older man walking, with like pure white hair, kind of a bigger build and he was completely naked, strolling through the woods. “He casually turned to look at me and then casually turned away. Not a care in the world.” The …

Break out the tights and cape. Registration for the annual 5K is open. The race is scheduled for April 28.
Erica Burg was leafing through her daughter’s Guinness Book of World Records, a one-time Christmas present, when the record for most people gathered in costume as superheroes caught her eye. “Basically, you have to stay in one location for 10 minutes is how that record works,” she said. DreamWorks Animation holds the current record, for a promotion it did in 2010 for the megahit movie Megamind. To break the previous record, the studio gathered about 1,600 costumed people in the Staples Center in Los Angeles. While that might seem like a hard number to top, Burg already has the perfect potentially record-breaking event lined up. On April 28, the Pittsburgh branch of the Texas-based Superhero Foundation will sponsor its fourth annual 5K run/…

The Ralph Swain Queen's Race for Love and Life to begin at 9 a.m.Saturday.
Correction: Proceeds from the event will benefit the Women's Choice Network. The article incorrectly reported that another organization would receive the proceeds and has since been revised. If you ask his children, they'll tell you it's hard to keep up with 76-year-old Ralph Swain. The Moon Township resident completed his first New York Marathon last year, the half Pittsburgh Marathon in May, and the 18-mile Homestead Challenge in June. When his daughter, Jenna Stivoric, wanted to start running in 5K events, she turned to her dad for advice and as a potential training partner. “But he was too busy with his bigger events,” she laughed. “So I figured if I created a 5K event in his honor, he would have to do it with me.” Stivoric is the …
