Students Invited to Join Kids of Steel Teams

Mars Area School District students (Grades K-8) are invited to join the District’s Kids of Steel running teams.

Team members will be asked to run a total of 25 miles (or approximately 1-3 miles per week) and to record their miles at home. Participants will then join in the 1.2-mile Chick-fil-A Pittsburgh Kids Marathon to be held at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 4.

Students may register for the race online at When registering, students should enter “Yes” in the “Are you participating in our Kids of Steel program?” field. In the next field, elementary students (K-6) should select “Mars School District K-6;” and middle school students (7-8) should pick “Mars Area Middle School – Mars Area.”
