As runners make their way through the Pittsburgh Marathon course on Sunday, they'll be joined by three runners pacers who will run the race at the times required to qualify for the U.S. Olympic Trials. The Post-Gazette profiles these three runners, Jeffrey Eggleston, Tyler McCandless, and Thomas Tisell.
"They're putting a lot of work into this race, into really making it a legitimate qualifier for both the men and the women to get their Olympic Trial standards out of the way," Eggleston said.
"It's kind of an up-and-coming marathon within the U.S. It's something I really wanted to be a part of."
