PigAbilities is an option for people of all ages with disabilities, their families and friends who may not wish to participate in a competitive event, but still want to be part of The Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon weekend. This event takes place when there are fewer crowds and more parking. While there are no timing chips or first place winners, PigAbilities participants should be willing to “go the distance” by making a commitment to enrich their lives through being more active and making healthy choices.
The objective of PigAbilities is to offer peer support and encouragement for people with and without disabilities that “train” together during the weeks leading up to the Cincinnati Flying Pig Weekend. Training encourages an active lifestyle, and also a program to help people to begin to make healthy choices. Throughout the training, participants can set their own distance goal and log their progress on the Hog Log (available here).
On Saturday, May 5th participants will gather for a 1:00pm Start Time and walk, roll or stroll the final mile on the actual Flying Pig Marathon course! At the Finish Line each finisher will receive a PigAbilities medal to commemorate their achievement. It is not mandatory to train in advance of the event in order to participate in PigAbilities on May 5th, but is encouraged.
Online Registration will remain open until April 22, 2018 or until the event sells out, whichever comes first and is required to participate in the event. Participation is $15 per person and includes a numbered bib and a PigAbilities event shirt. Note: PigAbilities does not require early shirt pick-up; bibs and tee shirts will be available for pick up beginning at 11:30am on Saturday, May 5th near the Starting Line. Registrants will receive an email with details about the day of the event.
Any person with a disability in need of assistance with the cost of registration, please contact the Flying Pig Office at 513-721-7447 or email email@example.com.
