American Development Program – Supporting future Olympians

The American Development Program is an initiative designed to increase exposure and racing opportunities for emerging American professional runners. With initiatives to propel runners forward in their running careers to international standings and participation in world-renowned athletic events, Pittsburgh’s American Development Program is committed to supporting promising American athletes in the running industry.

Committing to Sustainability Practices

P3R is committed to sustainability practices and works with community organizations to achieve green initiatives including: transforming vacant lots on the course to community gardens and/or art spaces; composting bananas and peels, cookies and cups from finish line operations and race course aid stations; and donating clothes left by runners to Goodwill.

Community Engagement and Participation – Neighborhoods, cheerathoners and bands

Community participation of the residents and neighborhood groups are instrumental. Exciting bands and energetic cheerathoners are two of the many reasons that runners choose to participate in our event.

These programs are an easy way to get your coworkers and college classmates active and having fun.

Open Streets

P3R strives to enhance community involvement in fitness activities and is proud to partner with OpenStreetPGH – opening streets to people for biking, walking, running and fun!
To celebrate our city, we are collaborating with OpenStreetsPGH to expand upon their pilot model and produce three summer events of public interest activities. On the last Sunday of May, June and July, the city will be transformed into a linear route spanning 3.5 miles of interactive programming, food, fun, music, shopping and fitness.
