it's not just a race,

it's an experience.

Whether you’re just starting a fitness program or running your umpteenth marathon, P3R is the Pittsburgh runner’s go-to group for powerful training programs, distinctive city races, and exceptional health & fitness events. If you’re serious about health, fitness, and fun, get to know us!

run with us

Best known for organizing the acclaimed annual DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon, P3R also organizes a variety of other high-quality races, training runs, and health & fitness programs throughout the Pittsburgh region.

While many of our races attract some of the nation’s highest-profile professional athletes, we offer activities for all ages and ability levels. The only criterion for participation is a desire to be happy, healthy, and active!

Give With Us

Many of us have felt the positive impacts of running on our own physical, mental, and emotional health. P3R provides multiple opportunities for individuals, community groups, and companies to “pay it forward,” sharing their love of running and inspiring others to get involved and benefit from a happy, healthy running lifestyle.

partner with us

As a nonprofit, P3R couldn’t do what we do without the partnership of our corporate sponsors. If your company is looking for ways to enhance employee wellness, gain awareness in the greater Pittsburgh region, connect with other area businesses, and reach corporate philanthropic goals, P3R is here to help.
