Event Overview

Each fall, fans celebrate the start of a new season by participating in the Pittsburgh Penguins 6.6K Run and Family Walk presented by Highmark. The unique 6.6K distance (4.1 miles) pays tribute to Pittsburgh Penguins great Mario Lemieux, and proceeds from the event benefit the Mario Lemieux Foundation and the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation.

The 6.6K Run begins at PPG Paints Arena, follows the event’s traditional Two Bridges/One Tunnel course and returns to PPG Paints Arena for the finish. A 3.3K Family Walk (2.05 miles) is also offered each season to individuals and groups of four.
