All runners are welcome so bring a friend and come on out for this fun time!

Pace Groups:

We will be offering pacers for each of the distances offered. Please check back in April for a list of pace groups offerings by event. It is recommended that you run at a pace that is 30 seconds to one minute slower than your race pace. The pacers will be pacing at the announced pace while running. Traffic stops and water stops will not be factored into the pace.

While this run is FREE for you to participate, we do ask that, in return, each participant donates $10 to support Kids of STEEL, P3R's FREE youth running program. If every participant donates $10, we can provide transportation for a Kids of STEEL team in Western Pennsylvania to make it to the Chick-fil-A Pittsburgh Kids Marathon on May 6!
