Race Heats

Race heats will be updated April 2018. The first heat starts at 9:30 AM and the last heat starts around 11:15 AM. Kids of STEEL sites are sorted into heats near the beginning. Children not running with a site will start closer to 11:00 AM. 

Packet Pick Up

Kids of STEEL (KOS) sites have the option to pick up Kids Marathon race numbers and shirts ahead of time so that they can distribute these items at their site. If your child participates through an official Kids of STEEL site, please check with the site coordinator to see if he/she will be taking advantage of this option. 

If your KOS site is not distributing items or your child doesn't participate with a KOS site, you have two options for packet pick-up. 

  • Visit the GNC Live Well Pittsburgh Health and Fitness Expo on Friday, May 4, 2018 between 11:00 AM and 8:00 PM and look for the Toyota Pittsburgh Kids Marathon booth. Click here for Expo hours and location. Please note that Kids Marathon participants will not receive a race packet confirmation ticket ahead of time. Race numbers will be sorted and picked up alphabetically by last name. 

  • Pick up your race number and shirt on race morning, Saturday, May 5, near the start line on the North Shore starting at 6:30 AM.

Please note that all kids will receive their goody bags and medal at the finish line.
