1). The Scenic Course Is Not to Be Missed. Rolling, green hills. Bridges crisscrossing the city, connecting to charming neighborhoods. Three rivers winding around a picturesque Downtown. Old-world architecture sharing space with modern skyscrapers. Running up the hills is worth the stunning views you see from the top.
2). It’s a Weekend-long Celebration. The DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon is an unofficial holiday. Race Day is the pinnacle event, but Pittsburgh has three full days of excitement, including the GNC Live Well Health & Wellness Expo, a 5K run, Pet Walk and more.
