Kids of STEEL for Families

MOVE together as a family at home with the Kids of STEEL program.

Here’s how:

Make a plan to run/walk 25 training miles over the next eight weeks. Use your Kids of STEEL Mileage Log to track your progress.

Get involved in the following events! Register and receive free resources and training guides.

  • FlyBy 5K and 2-Mile Fun Run/Walk presented by CNX Resources features a unique course that lets participants run through the airfield and taxiways of Pittsburgh International Airport, taking them past aircraft parked along the runway and showing them a side of the airport few get to see.
    This family-friendly race makes it possible for everyone to race the runways and earn their wings! There are two options to participate: the 5K (a timed 3.1-mile course) and the 2-Mile Fun Run/Walk (untimed), so there's something for everyone. Both courses are stroller-friendly, and children younger than 4 years old can register for free.
  • The Dollar Bank Junior Great Race is the perfect way for Kids of STEEL to get involved in this GREAT weekend. On Saturday, September 24 there is an event for everyone. The diaper dash, tot trot, and one-mile family fun run headline family day in Point State Park. 
  • The 2023 Chick-fil-A Pittsburgh Kids Marathon is a perfect way for kids and their families to participate in the DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon Weekend of Events. This race is the culminating race for Kids of STEEL participants following the Kids Marathon training plan - they run 25 miles throughout their training and run the final mile of their marathon on race day!
