Kids’ Marathon

After completing the first 25 miles of your “oink”remental marathon, you can be part of the Cincinnati Children’s 26th Mile on Saturday, May 4th. This is a special event on Flying Pig marathon weekend where kids and their fitness buddies can cruise to their marathon finish, covering that final marathon mile on the real Flying Pig Marathon course. Participants get all the swag deserving of a marathoner including shirt, medal, and finisher’s treats. Registration is required. Adults can accompany kids but for safety and security of our children, we do ask that they be registered for the 26th Mile Event as well.


Get your own herd of pigs flying by becoming an official Flying Pig Kids’ Marathon Team. Parents, teachers, troop leaders, youth program coordinators, or adults who want to give kids a terrific opportunity to be part of The Flying Pig Marathon and begin a lifetime of good health can lead a program. We will give you all the support and resources you need.
