2021 Kids’ Chance 5k Run/1-mile Walk

Since 2008, the Kids’ Chance of PA Walk/Run Events have raised more than $130,000 to provide scholarships to children of injured workers. This event allows our Pittsburgh-area friends to participate as a runner or walker, as an onsite volunteer and as a sponsor.

**As we did last year, we will be following all Allegheny County COVID-19 guidelines.

**Again in 2021 – Virtual Racing!   In addition to our 5K race and 1-mile fun walk, participants will have the option to participate virtually. What is virtual racing? Just run or walk on your own anytime between the time you register and September 30, 2021. Then email us your time (yes, it’s on the honor system). We will post your time in the official results and you will receive your T-shirt and finisher’s medal by mail. Now there’s no need to live in the Pittsburgh area to participate in our 5K!

DATE: Sunday, September 12, 2021

LOCATION: South Park Fairgrounds, Pittsburgh, near the Museum

TIME: Registration begins at 8:00 am, Race kicks off at 9:00 am
