Triple Crown Challenge

For the last five years, P3R has been proud to challenge runners to keep moving all year long through the #RUNwithP3R Challenge. The thousands who have completed the challenge have demonstrated their endurance, commitment, and passion, and it has been our privilege to witness all of you cross so many finish lines, achieve your personal bests, and collect your hard-earned challenge medals.

As P3R evolves and grows, our mission to inspire and engage any and all in movement remains at the heart of everything we do. We’re thrilled to share that, starting in 2024, the #RUNwithP3R Challenge will be known as the P3R Triple Crown Challenge.

This new chapter is more than a name change: it’s a reflection of our commitment to movement in all of its forms. The Triple Crown Challenge encompasses not just the endurance of marathon weekend events, the speed of America’s Mile, and the perseverance required for the 10 Miler — it celebrates the different ways in which all of us choose to move. Remember, the miles are the miles, no matter how fast or method we use to get from the start to the finish.

What’s new in the P3R Triple Crown Challenge?

  • Broader participation. While we’re maintaining the core of our year-round challenge (including any DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon Weekend Event, any heat in America’s Mile presented by VisitPITTSBURGH, and any distance at the EQT Pittsburgh 10 Miler and 10K), we’re embracing all forms of movement. Walkers, runners, and everyone in between. This challenge is for YOU.
  • Enhanced experience. Expect the same thrilling competition and camaraderie with a renewed focus on making every mile empowering.
  • Exclusive rewards: The Triple Crown isn’t just about the events — it’s about the journey and the community you build along the way. Finishers will receive a special edition Triple Crown medal, symbolizing their achievement!
