Pittsburgh Marathon Weekend Meet Up Information!

ATTENTION RUNNERS OF STEEL: We are four days until race day!!! Now that I have your attention....

I have had a ton of people ask me if there were any meet up/tweet ups planned for Pittsburgh Marathon weekend. Since I have not seen anyone really talking about it, I decided to take matters in to my own hands!

Since the Pittsburgh Marathon has added the Steel Challenge, completing the 5K along with any Sunday race, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity for our meetup!

Just in case you need help locating the position, here is some help! It is super easy to get to, and the start line for the 5K is right there! 

If you are not running the 5K, come down early and cheer on the rest of us! Plus, the expo opens at 9am on Saturday, you can already be downtown! The 5K starts at 8am and it goes through a nice part of the Pittsburgh Marathon route.

Of course, we need a hashtag! If you are coming to the meet up/tweet up, use #PGHmeetup. You know, because everything is better with a hashtag!

Also, Sparkly Soul wants to be in on the fun! The wonderful ladies of Sparkly Soul are giving away five headbands for people who come to the meet up/tweet up!! Here is what you need to do to be entered to win one!

1. Follow Sparkly Soul and the Pittsburgh Marathon on twitter.
2. Tweet this anytime between now and the marathon!

"The @PGHMarathon #PGHmeetup is going to get sparkly thanks to @SPARKLYSOULINC and @sas_rubel!  #nopieceofblackelasticintheback"

Bonus entry if you take a selfie with me through the weekend and post it on social media! Tag me on Twitter or Instagram along with Sparkly Soul and the Pittsburgh Marathon! Use #PGHmeetup so I can see your entry!

That's the plan, folks! Make sure to spread the love! I want to meet a bunch of you, take a lot of selfies and take my mind off of racing this race! I cannot wait to meet you guys! If you have any questions you can email me or tweet at me.

Will I be seeing you at the meetup? Have you participated in one before?

    Oh fun! I'll have to see what our day is like on Saturday. I can't believe teens until race day! Gosh I need to get some long runs in ASAP!

  2. I'll be there. I'm racing the 5K this year and will be running the HM for fun. :)

  3. I'll be there! This is my first time running this 5K and i'm striving to keep it my slowest official one ever so I don't blow my legs out for the next day... lol I just want an extra medal. :P

  4. Thanks for organizing this! I haven't decided whether I'm running the 5K. If I do it will be just for fun. But if I don't, I'll still be there cheering everyone on so I'll definitely be there early for this!

  5. I will be there to cheer you all on before I go spend the rest of the day working the expo

  6. hahah I completely forgot that I signed up for the 5K too. SEE YOU THERE! :)

  7. I'm dying that the race is only 10 days away! See you all there!

  8. I am not running any of the races this year, but I will be at the medical tent at mile 5.6 on Sunday morning. :) Cheering all of you marathoners and half marathoners on!
