Marathon

The Flying Pig Marathon will be offered as an in-person and virtual event this fall. We are working on approvals related to the start times and courses with multiple municipal, city and event partners. Should anything change, and as additional details are finalized, we will communicate those to our participants.

Packet Pick-up

Virtual participants: Virtual Flying Pig participants can expect to receive their items via mail to the address included on their registration. We will begin mailing Spring virtual premiums in June and expect to mail Fall virtual premiums in November. Please note: international participants may experience additional mailing delays due to customs.

If an in-person event and expo is able to be held, Packet Pickup will be held at the P&G Health & Fitness Expo located in the Duke Energy Convention Center.
