Join our 2018 Marathon Team

Thanks so much for considering joining our 2018 marathon team! This will be the sixth year that L.I.V.I.N.G. Ministry has been  a part of this event, and we are expecting some awesome things from God as we hit the pavement and run! Last year God tremendously blessed our entire marathon team. We had 94 runners participate and raised over $35,000! This year we are trying to get 100 runners, have several training runs and community dinners, and raise $45,000.

If you are interested in joining our team and helping us reach more of Pittsburgh's homeless, then follow the steps below to join our team. We look forward to running with you!



To join our team, you must register on our marathon crowdrise page. Start by going here. Then click the black 'JOIN' button.  


Decide whether or not you are registering and fundraising or just fundraising. If you have not registered for any marathon event yet, you should select "REGISTER AND FUNDRAISE". If you have already registered on your own, but want to join our team and help the ministry through your fundraising efforts that select "FUNDRAISE ONLY" (sorry but we cannot refund any marathon registrations you have already paid)


Select the event that you would like to participate in.


For the next page, you will officially join our team. For all marathon events, you will automatically be assigned to our team. You will only need to press "Next Step"

If you are going to be a captain of a relay team, your screen will have you create a 'sub team'. A sub team is the name of your relay team. Create your sub tea new then press "Next Step"

If you are going to be a team member of a relay team but are not the team captain, your screen will have you select a sub team. There, you will want to find the name of your relay team and select it. Then you should press "Next Step"


Now you will need to create a crowdrise account. If you already have a crowdrise account, you can enter here. If you do not, you will need to create a new account.
