Based upon runner feedback and with a goal to improve the race day experience for all participants, the Flying Pig has instituted corrals, or “Pig Pens” for the 5K. Corral assignments will be based on expected finish time, and will be included on your bib*.
Please allow extra time to find and position yourself in the correct Pig Pen. Late arriving participants will not be guaranteed placement in their correct Pig Pen.
- If you need to change your assigned corral, please visit the “Corral Assignment” booth near the Registration area at the P&G Health and Fitness on Friday or on-site on Saturday morning before the race.
All registered participants will receive a shirt, limited-edition poster, and virtual goodie bag.
All 5K finishers will receive a finisher’s medal, mylar blanket, and Finish-area refreshments. Finisher’s certificates will be available to download after the race.
Baggage claim is not available for Saturday events.
