3-Way / 4-Way

In the celebration of the city of Cincinnati and the Flying Pig Marathon, Skyline Chili is proud to present the 3-Way and 4-Way Challenge in the Flying Pig Marathon weekend of events. (The events’ namesakes are the Skyline 3-Way, a Cincinnati signature dish crafted from chili, spaghetti and cheese; and the Skyline 4-Way, crafted from chili, spaghetti, cheese and onions.) To complete the 3-Way Challenge, a single runner must complete Saturday’s 5K and 10K events, as well as Sunday’s Half Marathon. To complete the 4-Way Challenge, a single runner must complete Saturday’s 5K and 10K events, as well as Sunday’s Full Marathon.

Skyline Chili 3-Way and 4-Way Challenge Finishers will receive additional premiums for their great achievements, including a technical finisher’s shirt, a plaque to display all event medals, and an additional 3-Way/4-Way Challenge finisher’s medal. Are you up for the Challenge?

History of Skyline Chili

Elite athletes pursue dreams with enviable enthusiasm. In 1949, Nicholas Lambrinides began pursuing his dream in a similar way–by working incredibly hard to make his delicious secret recipes for appreciative customers. Since then, Skyline (named for a view from the first restaurant in Price Hill) has been delighting generations with their famous Ways, coneys and fast tableside service. Skyline Chili serves its Cincinnati-style chili in over 130 restaurants and thousands of grocery stores, making it one of the truly unique regional taste sensations in America. Like the Flying Pig Marathon, Skyline is dedicated to bringing friends and families together for an experience like no other. Skyline Chili is synonymous with Cincinnati-style chili throughout the world.

At the finish of the 10K race, do NOT pick up your finisher’s medal if you intend to continue your participation in “The Challenge” by participating in the 5K event.  After you have completed both the 10K and the 5K, medal distributers will award you with both medals at the finish of the 5K.
