PITTSBURGH — The 22nd Annual Gatorade/Steelers 5K Race, Fitness Walk and Kids’ Kickoff Run will be held on Saturday, September 4, at 9 a.m. at Heinz Field. The race is moving back to Labor Day weekend this year.
The race, which benefits the Art Rooney Scholarship Fund, is a competitive event sanctioned by USA Track and Field with a 3.1-mile level course on the North Side highlighted by a spectacular finish on the warning track in Heinz Field.
Gatorade is the title sponsor of the race. Major sponsors include Giant Eagle, Dick’s Sporting Goods, KDKA-TV 2, WDVE-FM, Fox Sports Radio 970, Dean Dairy, and UPMC St. Margaret.
The Art Rooney Scholarship Fund was established in memory of the late founder of the Steelers who died in August of 1988 after living most of his life on the North Side. A $12,000 scholarship in Art Rooney’s name is presented annually to a graduating senior from each of the three high schools on the North Side — Oliver, Perry and North Catholic.
