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.
VisitPITTSBURGH has announced the hiring of Tom Loftus as vice president of communications.
In his new role, Lofts will be in charge of managing and executing all internal and external communications programs, while also incorporating multimedia and digital communication tools that support and enhance the organization’s goals and mission.
At VisitPITTSBURGH’s Annual Meeting on Wednesday, elected officials and senior staff celebrated the many accolades and achievements the city has had over the past year.
"It's clear that Pittsburgh's time has come," says Craig Davis, president and CEO of VisitPITTSBURGH, the official tourism promotion agency for Pittsburgh and Allegheny County. "What better city to live, work and visit, and to celebrate what it is today.”
