Public Safety bureaus (EMS, Fire, Police and Emergency Management), City officials and partnering agencies will stage along the course and across the city to ensure everyone stays safe while having fun. As always, if you see anything suspicious, call 911. 

Public Safety Director Lee Schmidt says Pittsburgh is excited to host the running community from Western Pennsylvania and beyond. 

“This is the second Pittsburgh Marathon since the Pandemic, and we’re looking forward to welcoming even more runners and visitors back to our city,” Schmidt said. “As large events continue to regain momentum, there is no better way to celebrate that than with runners as they cross the finish line."
