Run 1-2-3 Challenge Series

Get Ready, Get Set...

A new, exciting challenge is coming to our Kids of STEEL!

Get ready Kids of STEEL! We are launching a new, exciting challenge that's fun, goal oriented, and rewarding - the Run 1-2-3 Challenge Series!

The Run 1-2-3 Challenge Series is designed to help kids build the confidence and stamina to run further distances (and have fun while doing it!). As part of the challenge, kids will complete a 1 mile, 2 mile, and 3 mile race over a 1-year period. It is a HUGE accomplishment to go from a 1 mile race to a 3 mile race in just 12 months!

Once children have completed the series, they will receive a commemorative medal. 

Races for 2018-19 Series are:

Run 1 - The 1-mile Toyota Pittsburgh Kids Marathon (May 5, 2018) OR GNC Live Well Liberty Mile (July 2018)

Run 2 - The 2-Mile Fun Run as part of the PIT FlyBy 5K (Sept/Oct 2018)

Run 3 - The 3.1 mile UPMC Health Plan/UPMC Sports Medicine Pittsburgh 5K Run (May 2019)

Only the races listed above count for the RUN 1-2-3 CHALLENGE. Other races cannot be substituted for these races. Thank you!

Run 1-2-3 is a great way for kids (and parents!) to stay motivated, active, and healthy throughout the year. Each child is required to have at least one parent participate with them in each event. To enroll your child for the challenge and receive reminders, please register below.
