Pittsburgh Marathon Weekend

Run For A Reason

The Mighty Penguins are partnering with Hockey Sticks Together to raise money for our team through the Pittsburgh Marathon Events.  There is a 1 mile Kid’s Marathon, 5K, Half Marathon and Full Marathon.  You are able to walk, run, roll, or cycle.  You will need to register as a runner and then email that you did by March 16.  We will be submitting a list to the Marathon Committee.  You will be able to upload your picture to raise money for our team.  We raised about $5000 last year.  Hockey Sticks Together is not listed as Run For A Reason Charity. This is why we need to know who is on our team to provide to the Marathon Committee. We hope to qualify next year but we need to raise $7000 as a team first. 

Marathon Weekend Events

Saturday, May 5

5K-- 8am

Kid's Marathon (1 mile) 9:30am

Sunday, May 6

Marathon 7am

Half Marathon 7am


We know going from a 5K to a Full Marathon is a big difference. We asked the Marathon committee if handcyclist can do the half marathon. They are open to it as an exhibition but we need to know how many of you are interested. 

Registration ends in March so please let us know by March 16 if you plan to participate.

Age Requirements

Anyone 13 or under needs an escort. Here are other age requirements: 

Marathon & Half Marathon 

  • Participants must meet the minimum age requirement by race day (May 6, 2018) in order to participate:
  • Marathon requires runners to be at least 18 years old
  • Half Marathon requires runners to be at least 16 years old

5K Rules—Handcycles Exhibition in Race again this year

Anyone 13 and under needs an adult escort.  We were told of an escort wants a shirt and medal they need to register as a runner. If you just want to escort, you can just give your name by 3/16. You can participate for free but be given a bib and not get timed. 

Kids Marathon 1 mile

Can an adult run with a child?

Yes! Each child is allowed one (1) adult to run with them for FREE. During the registration process, please choose YES when asked if an adult will run with registrant on race day. This allows event staff to anticipate how many adults are expected to run on race day.

If a second adult wants to participate with their child, additional adult entries are available for $10 at the Toyota Pittsburgh Kids Marathon booth located with the GNC Live Well Pittsburgh Health and Fitness Expo on Friday, May 5 and Saturday May 6 at the Packet Pickup booth near the start line on the North Shore. Proceeds benefit race registrations for underprivileged children.

Course Rules: Strollers, baby joggers, skateboards, scooters, roller skates and roller blades are not permitted on the course. 

Borrow A Handcycle To Race

The Hope Network offers an opportunity for you to try out and borrow handcycles!

Marathon Volunteers
