2017 Pittsburgh Marathon

The ninth running of the DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon was held on May 7, 2017. Between the full and half-marathon, approximately 35,000 runners hit the streets in the City of Pittsburgh.  As in years past, people lined the streets along the marathon course throughout the 13 city neighborhoods to provide encouragement to the runners.

UPMC Sports Medicine has been the medical provider for the Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon and has been refining the medical care of the runners since 1985, when the first Pittsburgh Marathon was held.

The UPMC Medical Tent treated approximately 131 athletes along the race course and in the medical tent. 

Congratulations to the excellent medical team.
