This morning I decided to wake up early and take some pictures of the 2024 Pittsburgh Marathon. By the time I’d finished my coffee, the lead group of runners was about halfway done, so I went straight to mile 15. Luckily, I got to Fifth Avenue and Beechwood right in time to snap a few photos of Andrew Bowman, Tyler McCandless, and Jane Bareikis. The energy of the front of the pack was electrifying and people really went wild as these runners passed.

After that, I headed to mile 16 to another cheering station to capture more images of the runners and people cheering them on. The Point Breeze Community Association was handing out bagels, juice boxes, and coffee, which generated a big crowd (I was very happy to have a bagel but felt guilty eating in front of everyone working so hard! 😂)

I got motivated by all the energy of this amazing event, so I decided to just keep walking and photographing from mile 18 onwards to downtown. I saw so many people supporting the runners and even offering free beer and meatballs (brave runner who would attempt this!) I walked through Point Breeze, Homewood, East Liberty, Bloomfield, and Downtown, and saw how each neighborhood celebrated the event. The marathon truly brings out the community spirit of the city, with so many Pittsburghers turning out to support their own. I loved to see runners high-fiving people on the sidelines and encouraging each other, and of course the vibes at the finish line were amazing! It inspired me to want to take on the 26.2 this year. I have run a half-marathon and I absolutely loved it. After being part of this experience, I think I am ready to tackle the full. 

Here are some of my favorite Pittsburgh Marathon 2024 pictures captured en route.
