The Pittsburgh Marathon wants you to lace up your tennis shoes for its very first “Pittsburgh 10 Miler” this fall.</p><p>“The race will be for avid runners," Executive Director Patrice Matamoros said. "Some beginner runners will probably make this their goal, but we always advice to get on a training program. But it should be young and old. In this distance, you can see a wide array of different abilities and different ages.”</p> Wed, 26 Jun 2013 20:01:36 +0000 Jessica Nath 12141 at http://wesa.fm
