Members of Mars Area School District’s “Mars K-6th” Kids of Steel running team are invited to join in three training runs, to be held from 6 to 7 p.m. Monday, March 30; Thursday, April 16; and Wednesday, April 29, at Adams Township Community Park.
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).
Registration for the Kids of Steel team remains available online at https://p3r.org/races/chick-fil-a-pittsburgh-kids-marathon. When registering, students should enter “Yes” in the “Are you participating in our Kids of Steel program?” field; then, in the next field, students should select “Mars K-6th.”
