The Finish Line is Waiting for You!
You did it! You are a Runner of STEEL riding the wave of your accomplishment into the finish line chute where you'll receive your medal, water provided by Nathan, lemon-lime flavored Gatorade, heat sheets provided by Dick's Sporting Goods, Panera Bread bagels, bananas provided by Giant Eagle, Eat'n Park Smiley Cookies, Dole 100% Fruit Bowls as well as a bottle of water provided by Sheetz. Our world class UPMC Sports Medicine medical team will be available along the course and throughout the finish line area to support any and all medical needs. Remember to keep moving through the runner chute to avoid congestion. Participants heading to the Finish Line Festival will need to exit on the right side of the chute.
Food, Massages, Engraving, and MORE In the Finish Line Festival!

This year's Finish Line Festival will be packed with events and offers for participants and spectators alike! A special thanks to UPMC Health Plan and Root Sports for providing big screens at the finish line and Finish Line Festival with a live feed of participants crossing the finish line! A variety of food will be available for purchase from Marburger Concessions and Catering. Fond Memories Graphics will be on hand to engrave finishers medals for $20; no need to wait to show off your achievement! For those who want a larger display or customized plaque, Lasting Commemoratives will offer for purchase displays that proudly show race information, including runner's name, time and medal.  

Participants and spectators can enjoy massages from Massage Envy Spa, the official massage therapy provider for the Dick's Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon. New this year, the participant only massage tent will be located in the finish line festival. Spectators can also enjoy a massage from Massage Envy Spa in the Finish Line Festival for a fee - $35 for a 30 minute massage. To book an appointment, stop by the Massage Envy Spa booth at the GNC Live Well Pittsburgh Health and Fitness Expo. Proceeds benefit the Arthritis Foundation of Western Pennsylvania.  

Family Reunion Area Expanded

After the race, meet your family and friends at the Family Reunion Area located in the Finish Line Festival inside Point State Park. The Family Reunion Area will be positioned behind the Gear Check and Volunteer Check In tents. Large signs will be posted for runners and their families to meet.
