More than 8,000 volunteers (Grunts) are needed to make the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon special and to help make the Pig “fly”. Many of our volunteers are associated with charity groups while others are individuals. Volunteers play a significant role in the success of our event and it would not be possible without them. All volunteers must be at least 14 years of age.

Charity Group Volunteer Program

Many of our volunteers represent one of our official volunteer charity groups.

In keeping with the Marathon’s mission, those volunteer groups are eligible to receive a donation from the Pig.  In appreciation for bringing a group of volunteers and their time, the Flying Pig will make a direct donation to that non-profit organization.

We are now accepting volunteer group registrations for 2019. Click here to complete the form with your group’s information to apply for now of our 2019 volunteer assignment opportunities.

Charity Group Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are needed throughout the weekend to help with all facets of the event such as fluid stations, on-course aid stations, start and finish line area.
