Months ahead of the 2019 DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon, you can gauge how well your training is going with this event hosted by P3R and Steel City Road Runners. There are runs of three distances (4, 6 and 8 miles) at various paces. Check-in begins at 7 a.m., with runs beginning at 8:30 a.m. There will also be post-race refreshments, including hot chocolate (important on a January morning), coffee and bagels — not to mention, a surprise gift. And best of all? It’s free!
