Run for Kids of STEEL

Share your love of running with kids! Join Kids of STEEL Charity Runners!

Kids of STEEL is P3R’s free training program that helps motivate kids and their families to get moving. The program is unique – an official race provides a tangible goal for kids to work toward – and is currently available in more than 180 schools in western Pennsylvania.

As part of the award-winning Kids of STEEL program, kids complete at least 25 training miles in preparation for a family-friendly P3R event. Then they get to celebrate their hard work and join YOU as a new member of Pittsburgh’s dynamic running community. This program is made possible in part by the generous support of the Pittsburgh running community. Thank you for helping local kids discover the life-long sport of running! Get involved by selecting Kids of STEEL when registering for the DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon Weekend!
