Registration for the 2019 Pittsburgh Marathon opened at 9 a.m. on Monday morning.

The race is offering something called “Move Pricing” — When registration opened for the Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon and UPMC Health Plan Pittsburgh Half Marathon the race fee was set at $65 for a limited number of spots, once those spots were taken, the price increased $1. This continues but the fee is capped at $80 for Monday registrations.

Fees for marathon relay teams start at $250 on Monday.

The race is offering special deals with registrations each day this week. See their blog for more information .

Next year’s race is set for Sunday, May 5, with a 6:50 a.m. start for the wheelchair division and 7:05 a.m. start for the general division. The race is set to follow the same course as previous years making a tour of 14 neighborhoods in Pittsburgh, starting and finishing in Downtown.

Apart from the 26.2- and 13.1-mile races, marathon weekend will also feature a 5k, a one-mile kids marathon, a toddle trot and a pet walk.

This will be the 11th year of the marathon since it restarted in 2009 after a hiatus.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
