“The EQT Pittsburgh 10 Miler is a fantastic way to get a tour of our city,” said Adrian Crouch, a Steel City Road Runners member and a 2018 official DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon blogger. “Fall in Pittsburgh is beautiful, and the views of the city while running over the bridges is incredible.”
