Get an exclusive Autism Connection gift!

Brand new for the 2022 DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon Weekend of Events, P3R is proud to introduce the “Back Half.”

Every year, thousands of runners complete the UPMC Health Plan Pittsburgh Half Marathon, many of them running the race multiple years. But unless those runners want to run the complete 26.2-mile DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon course, they never get to see the 13.1 miles that come after the Birmingham Bridge. 2022 is the year that changes for 500 lucky and dedicated half marathoners.


Charity runners who commit to raising $1500 can run the "Back Half”! Autism Connection of PA runners who choose this option will receive an exclusive Autism Connection hoodie!
