Western Pennsylvania: Marietta at the Marathon
Sunday, MAY 7
Where: Downtown Pittsburgh - Marathon begins at 7am, post-race gathering 12:15 p.m.
We know Marietta College alums will be participating in a variety of ways – and if you aren’t, the Marietta College Regional Association of Western Pennsylvania would like to encourage you to join us on Sunday, May 7th for some of the festivities.
Here are three ways you can participate:
*If you’re running, let us know! Email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you’ll be running so we can encourage you!
*Maybe you’d like to volunteer (and wear some Pioneer gear to show the love). Sign up here and then email us at email@example.com if you’ll be volunteering – or if you’d just like to cheer on Pioneers who might be running!
*Meet up with others after the race – and raise a glass to the Class of 2017 who will be graduating that day. We have reservations at The Yard in Market Square at 12:15pm. It’s a pay as you go event so there’s no registration fee, but please register so we know how many folks to expect (and if we need to increase our reservation).
