Security For May 5th Pittsburgh Marathon Review

April 16, 2013

Plans for the upcoming Pittsburgh Marathon will include heightened security measures, prompted by the tragedy at the Boston race on Monday.

Pittsburgh’s 26.2 mile race, expected to attract about 30,000 runners, is scheduled for Sunday, May 5.  Some 27,000 competitors started Monday’s Boston Marathon.

The city of Pittsburgh had already scheduled more than 500 police officers and security guards to be on hand for their race.  The event director and local and state emergency management officials have an appointment to discuss much tighter security methods.  Already, officials have stressed that the number of bomb detection sweeps will be increased, and access to the finish line will be scrutinized.

The next major marathon will be held in London this coming Sunday, April 21.
