Keystone Challenge

Together with the Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon, the AACR Philadelphia Marathon team is proud to announce the inaugural year of the Keystone Challenge and hopes you will be among the first to take part!

Runners who participate in both the Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Full or Half Marathon and the AACR Philadelphia Marathon, Dietz & Watson Half Marathon or any of our challenges (Liberty, Independence, Freedom) will receive a limited-edition Keystone Challenge medal in recognition of their completion of these events from two of Pennsylvania’s top Marathon Weekends.

NOTE: To be eligible for the Keystone Challenge, runners must complete their two events within a two-year span. These events must be a combination of either the 2018 or 2019 Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon or Half Marathon AND the 2018 or 2019 AACR Philadelphia Marathon, Dietz & Watson Half Marathon or any of our challenges (Liberty, Independence, Freedom). One race must be completed in each city within the two-year span to be eligible to receive the Keystone Challenge medal.
