Registration Rates

Kids of STEEL schools/organizations have the option to receive their students' race numbers and shirts ahead of time so that they can distribute these items at their school/site. If your child is part of an official Kids of STEEL school/site, please check with their coordinator to see if they will be taking advantage of this option. 

If your KOS school/site is not distributing items or you do not attend a KOS school, you have two options for packet pick-up. 

  1. Visit the GNC Live Well Pittsburgh Health and Fitness Expo on Friday, May 5, 2017 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. 
  2. Pick up your race number and shirt on race morning, Saturday, April 30, near the start line on the North Shore starting at 6:30 AM.

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