Bag Tags to Supply Credentials, Lanyards for Pittsburgh Marathon

Bag Tags Inc. will provide custom credentials and lanyards for the eighth DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon on Sunday, May 1. Event Passes and Woven Lanyards – two companies in the Bag Tags family – will provide the credentials and custom lanyards for the annual event organized by the nonprofit Pittsburgh Three Rivers Marathon Inc. (P3R).

The Pittsburgh Marathon is one of the fastest growing marathons in the U.S. In addition to the marathon on Sunday, the overall race weekend includes the GNC Live Well Pittsburgh Health and Fitness Expo on Friday, April 29. Additionally, on Saturday, April 30, P3R will host the UPMC Health Plan/UPMC Sports Medicine Pittsburgh 5K Run, Pittsburgh Toddler Trot, Toyota of Pittsburgh Kids Marathon and Pittsburgh Pets Walk. The UPMC Health Plan Pittsburgh Half Marathon and FedEx Ground Pittsburgh Marathon Relay will also take place on Sunday.

Bag Tags has been involved with the event for four years, according to Tom Yamaoka, director of sales and marketing for Bag Tags Inc. This is the first year that the company has provided custom lanyards in addition to credentials for the Pittsburgh Marathon.

“They’ve been really happy with us on their annual order,” Yamaoka said. “It’s good for us to expand our line to get the lanyard business this year too. We look to continue the relationship with them for as many years as we can.”

Bag Tags produced about 4,500 credentials and 3,000 lanyards for the event. The lanyards feature the DICK’S Sporting Goods and Pittsburgh Marathon logos while the credentials include the marathon logo and the city skyline.
