High School Challenge

Skyline Chili High School Challenge presented by Fleet Feet Sports

The Flying Pig Marathon is excited to partner with Skyline Chili, and Fleet Feet Sports Cincinnati to once again offer this unique initiative for your school, the Skyline Chili High School Challenge, presented by Fleet Feet Sports. This is a great opportunity to help your students learn and develop healthy habits while supporting your school! The goal of the program is to encourage and teach students ages 13-18 years old to improve their physical fitness and give back to the community by volunteering and fundraising for their school.

PART 1- TRAINING & PARTICIPATION! All students registered in the Skyline Chili High School Challenge, presented by Fleet Feet Sports should train for and participate in the Flying Pig 5K on Saturday, May 6. Fleet Feet Sports will provide a training schedule and helpful tips, designed specifically for high school students, to all participants. Participants can train individually, however, group-training sessions are encouraged.

PART 2- COMMUNITY SERVICE! Much like training for an athletic event makes your body stronger, volunteering makes your neighborhood a stronger, healthier community.

PART 3- FUNDRAISING! Students can use a number of fundraising methods to raise money for their school. All funds will go directly to the school. Ideally, the money raised would be used to promote a healthy lifestyle to the students.

To learn more about how your school can use the Piggest Raffle Ever to raise money please contact Joel Barnhill at joel@flyingpigmarathon.com.

 How do we keep score?

The score of each school participating in the challenge will be calculated by a weighted scale.

60% of the score will be based on student participation (as a percentage of total enrollment)

30% of the score will be based on community service (number of service hours compared to other schools based on participants)

 10% of the score will be based on fundraising (money raised compared to other schools based on participants)

The winning school will receive a traveling trophy, (2) $1,500 scholarships, a Skyline Chili cheese coney party and live coverage from your school by WLWT-TV.

The deadline to register your school is March 30. If you are interested in learning more or would like to schedule a visit to your school, please email robin@flyingpigmarathon.com and we’ll arrange a meeting.
