Fly Up to 5K

The Program

We are proud to partner with Tri-State Running Company to offer a youth training program for the Tri-State Running Company 5K held during Flying Pig Marathon Weekend! This training program is designed for those in middle school or junior high but can be completed by elementary aged children who have participated in the Kids’ Marathon 26th Mile event. Schools and other youth groups can now sign up as an official Fly Up to 5K group by emailing us at

Similar to our Kids’ Marathon 26th Mile program, students can train for the 5K together as a group during the weeks leading up to the Tri-State Running Company 5K. Our 5K Hog Log can be used as a training tracker and also includes healthy living and training tips.

5K Start


Training Programs

5K Walking Program: This program is designed for those who want to start walking so that they are prepared for the Tri-State Running Company/Flying Pig 5K. Whether you wish to walk with friends or try this challenge on your own, this program will allow you to walk the entire Flying Pig 5K.

Beginner 5K Program: This beginner version is designed for those who may not be runners yet but want to run the Tri-State Running Company/Flying Pig 5K. It slowly progresses from walking and running intervals until you can run a full 5K!

Intermediate 5K Running Program: This program is designed for those who are athletic and can already run at least a mile without walking. It is designed for athletes who want to stay in shape during the offseason or begin to compete at the 5K level.
