It's official: May is too early for the City of Pittsburgh to host the beloved Pittsburgh Marathon.
DICK'S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon announced yesterday (Jan. 28) that the City of Pittsburgh can't grant a permit for the weekend of racing events planned for May 1-2, 2021.
Race management and the City worked closely for months to develop plans to keep runners, volunteers, and spectators safe. But ultimately, it was determined that the size of the event, along with participants and spectators from all over the world made it impossible.

I'm in for this one. I'm going to run the half marathon again. It's a good benchmark + motivator that fits nicely into my year-long training plan to run a marathon in January 2022. And now that it's virtual, I can run it without traveling!

This Half Marathon is Getting Real!
When I saw this post by Pittsburgh Marathon it hit me how close my next half marathon is! It's not as scary as one month or one week, but it's a good reminder I have work to do before the big day (May 5, 2019).
I'm excited to run through the #SteelCity. If you follow @PghMarathon on Instagram you can see all the neighborhoods on the race course.
Here's the half marathon map:
The biggest difference between a half in Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh is the elevation. This half marathon crosses all three of Pittsburgh's rivers on three different bridges.
I'm excited to visit all the different neighborhoods. That's one of the best parts of Pittsburgh. I'm running this one with my daughter, so it will be fun to share the views. Also, I've heard wonderful things about crowd support in the 'burgh.
Here are a few facts about the race course:
A course map with elevation information is here.
More fun facts about the Pittsburgh races:
The USATF Half Marathon Championship takes place at the Pittsburgh Half.
