REGISTRATION HAS BEEN EXTENDED THROUGH AUGUST 31!

The Pittsburgh Penguins 6.6K presented by Highmark has gone virtual!  Get outside, enjoy the summer, and help raise funds for two great causes!

We might not be able to gather in person at PPG Paints Arena for our annual 6.6K Run and Family Walk, but we can still run together to support our Pittsburgh Penguins and two great Pittsburgh charities; the Mario Lemieux Foundation and the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation.

 

Registration has been extended!  You can register and run/walk your virtual 6.6K any time through August 31.  There is no official "race day," just make sure to upload your virtual race time by August 31.  Please follow instructions in your confirmation email to submit your virtual race time.  You must submit your time in order to receive the race packet with the race shirt and medal.

Race packets will be mailed during the week of September 14 to race finishers who register through August 15.  All others will be mailed the first week in October.  Shirt, medal and any earned fundraising prizes will be mailed together.

 

Included with registration:

- Custom 6.6K short-sleeve tech shirt (mens, womens & youth available)

- Custom 6.6K finishing medal

- 6.6K raffle ticket - participants are entered to win great Penguins prizes and signed memorabilia in the Pittsburgh Penguins Virtual 6.6K Raffle presented by Clearview Federal Credit Union.  Winners will be selected and announced when registration closes.

- Printable 6.6K race bib

- Special offers from 6.6K event sponsors

 

Please visit the FAQ page for additional race information, including international shipping and how to submit your virtual time.

 

New this year, the event will feature a Bench to 6.6K program brought to you by Highmark Health.  Each week throughout the race period, a training schedule will be posted and participants will work their way up to running a full 6.6K!  More details here.
