Kids of STEEL Program

More than 2,800 students participated in the 2013 Giant Eagle Kids of STEEL program. Students earned a special finisher prize and President's Challenge certificate for completing their training log. Giant Eagle Kids of STEEL participants logged over 72,000 miles this year!

In 2013, five elementary schools were awarded grants for their participation in the Giant Eagle Kids of STEEL program. Colfax Upper Elementary, Julia Ward Howe Elementary, McClellan Elementary, Rowan Elementary and South Fayette Elementary schools each won a $1,000 grant for their physical education programs.

The Giant Eagle Kids of STEEL Program is full for 2014. We are no longer accepting new schools/groups into the Program. Please note that while we are no longer accepting schools/groups into the program, students are still able to register and participate as an individual. Contact Katie Pavlich if you have any questions or would like to be placed on the school program wait list.


KOS school benefits include:

  • Ability to earn complimentary registrations for the Toyota of Pittsburgh Kids Marathon
  • Same start time and central meeting location on race day for all your students
  • Your t-shirts and race numbers will all be available before race day
  • For every 50 students your school registers for the Giant Eagle Kids of STEEL program, your school will receive one entry in our physical education grant contest. This is a random drawing to receive a $1,000 grant toward your school's physical education program - five grants will be distributed in 2014.
