Pittsburgh Marathon Rounds Up All 50 States

The Pittsburgh Marathon accomplished an exciting goal this week.

This year, for the first time ever, the Pittsburgh Marathon on May 3 will have runners from every state. Since 2011, North Dakota has been the only state to not have a participant, but things will be different this year. VisitPittsburgh launched a social media campaign that encouraged North Dakota runners to enter to win a sponsored trip to the race.
