Team members are asked to run a total of 25 miles (or approximately 1 to 3 miles per week) and to record their miles at home. Participants will then join in either the Sheetz Pittsburgh Toddler Trot (40 meters), Chick-fil-A Pittsburgh Kids Marathon (1 mile), or UPMC Health Plan/UPMC Sports Medicine Pittsburgh 5K Run (3.1 miles).
