Virtual Race Options Added for All Weekend Events
The Pittsburgh Marathon weekend events are now all open to everyone as virtual race. Can't make it to the Steel City to run in person this year? Choose a VIRTUAL 5K, Half or Full Marathon.
You can be a #RunnerOfSteel wherever you are! Virtual runner's race swag will be shipped the first week of May.
Deadline to Switch from In-person to Virtual is 3/31
If you're registered to run an in-person event and want to switch to virtual 🙋♀️ you can do it for free if you contact email@example.com on or before March 31, 2022.
Walking Division Added for 2022 Half Marathon
New in 2022! P3R added a Walking Division to the 2022 UPMC Health Plan Pittsburgh Half Marathon. This is an awesome opportunity for more people to participate!
If you walk the half marathon in person you need to maintain a minimum pace of 20 minutes per mile for the 13.1-mile course.
When registering for the half marathon, you’ll see a question asking if you’d like to participate in the walking division. Simply answer “yes” to this question so you're assigned to the correct starting line corral.
All walking division finishers will receive the half marathon finisher’s medal. There won't be any competitive awards.
Due to course time limits, there will only be a WALKING DIVISION for the Front Half Marathon Course in 2022.
Participants in the Back Half Marathon must maintain an average pace of 16 minutes per mile.
Hurry! Registration Closes on March 31, 2022
There are only a few spots left in the STEEL Challenge (5K on Saturday + Half OR Full on Sunday), but there's plenty of room in the other events.
Registration for Pittsburgh Marathon events closes on March 31, so sign up ASAP!
Preview Pittsburgh Full and Half Courses on April 9
Join P3R in Market Square on April 9, 2022 for the annual Pittsburgh Marathon/Half Marathon course preview run.
The run will tour ~12 miles of the Half Marathon course and ~20 miles of the full Marathon course.
On-course water stations, plus post-run Nuun Hydration and Honey Stinger gels will be provided. DICK's Sporting Goods will provide hot coffee for all runners.
The course preview run is free, but please consider a donation of $10 to help support Kids of STEEL, P3R's youth running program.

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.
Pittsburgh Marathon 2021 Virtual Event Registration Opens Feb. 1, 2021 at Noon
If you registered for a 2021 DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon Weekend event, you'll get an email from race management on Monday, February 1, 2021 with details regarding your options to race virtually or request a refund.
If you want to run a virtual event, registration reopens on February 1, 2021, at NOON ET.
Registration for VIRTUAL Pittsburgh Marathon Weekend Events (Full, Relay, Half, 5K) Opens at NOON ET on Mon., February 1, 2021
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!
