Cincinnati Children’s Family Pack

Medals for the entire family? Backpacks for the kids? Where do we sign up?

Kids activities canceled due to COVID? We got you. Complete the Flying Pig 5K, 10K or 26th Mile together, virtually.

 

With the cancellation of many team sports and activities this fall, you’re probably seeking ways to keep your family active (trust us, we are too). That’s why we’re launching the Cincinnati Children’s Family Pack — a way to engage your entire family, no matter age or experience, in an activity that promotes wellness and spending time together, and rewards everyone with gear, medals and a sense of accomplishment. Your Pack of Pigs will never be closer!

Why?

Research shows that running/walking with family members is one of the safest athletic endeavors during COVID. The spring is a perfect time to train and participate in a 5K or 10K event. We’re all experiencing cabin fever and screen overload.

How does this work?

You sign up your Pack of Pigs below. Don’t worry, it’s simple. Then you might want to download a distance tracking app, such as ASICS Runkeeper — they’re free and handy for knowing how far you and the fam run or walk. Maybe you train once a week, maybe it’s once a day! There are no rules and it’s all governed by the honor system. Once you complete your final distance, upload a great photo of your Pack to Facebook or Instagram for bragging rights.

What do you get?

Everyone in the Pack gets a medal and a t-shirt. Each group also receives a number of backpacks for the kids (based on group size). You also receive the feeling of accomplishment, family bonding, seeing things in your neighborhood that you never knew existed…and more.

The quickest way to register?

  1. Visit the 2021 Spring Virtual Flying Pig registration page here.

  4. Once complete, click “Add Another Registrant” at the bottom of the page, then add your next family member. Repeat for all group members.
