Calling Jr. and Sr. High School Students: A Scholarship For You!

The Flying Pig is teaming up with Skyline Chili and Fleet Feet Sports to offer two $1,500 scholarships to high school track & field and/or cross country athletes.

All scholarship applications must be submitted before April 10th, 2017.

Changes to our Course

Our course is one that lives in a breathing and evolving city. For that reason, some changes to the course are in order. These changes are necessitated by construction projects in Newport and on the Marburg Avenue bridge in Cincinnati. We’ve been working to minimize the impact to the course and are in the final stages of certification. We look forward to sharing the alterations with you in the next couple weeks.
