The Spring Thaw

The Spring Thaw

Saturday February 25th, 2017
North Park Rose Barn/Boathouse
Pearce Mill Rd. 
Allison Park, PA
All 3 races start at 10:00 A.M.



This race began as the original Pittsburgh Marathon and has evolved into one of the best warm-up races used by many Pittsburghers, and now many from outside the region, to prepare for the spring marathon season. ALL registrants get an embroidered winter hat, 15 Mile FINISHERS get gloves, and 20 Mile FINISHERS receive gloves and a  neck gaiter.

PACE TEAMS
Once again, the pace team from Marathon Pacing will be on hand to help lead runners of all abilities.  They will have pacers from 7:00/mile - 11:00/mile in 30 second increments.  This is an invaluable service to help you stay on track and reach your goals.  The pacers are all CPR certified and have run an average of 50 marathons. Most have also paced 19-20 marathons as well. Go to http://marathonpacing.com/springthaw.php to see your pacers for this year and be sure to join us on February 25th.
