Gatorade is the title sponsor of the race. Associate sponsors include Giant Eagle, Dick's Sporting Goods, Nike, KDKA-TV 2, WDVE-FM, Fox Sports Radio 970 and UPMC Centers for Rehab Services.

Proceeds from the race go to the Art Rooney Scholarship Fund, which 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.
