Best known for organizing the acclaimed annual DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon weekend of events, P3R (Pittsburgh Three Rivers Marathon, Inc.) also manages a variety of other high-quality races, events, and health and fitness programs throughout the Pittsburgh region. While many of our races attract some of the nation’s highest-profile professional athletes, we offer events for all ages and ability levels. The only criterion for participation is a desire to be happy, healthy and active!
Our events will consistently serve the needs of our runners and our sponsors; will engage and reward our volunteers; will enhance the economic well-being of the Pittsburgh region; will partner with public and private entities to create the best possible event experience; and partner with appropriate charitable organizations to give back to the community.
