The 2011 Dick's Sporting Goods Pittsburg Marathon sold out today! Indicative of the popularity of big city marathons, the 2011 Dick's Sporting Goods Pittsburg Marathon announced that it's field had reached their goal of 22,000 in the five events over the weekend! Nice job Pittsburg! (And we love the logo!). It is also indicative of the success that large sportings goods chains are having with performance running footwear and the amazing amount of running footwear sold at Marathon & Race Expos.
