COURSE BONUS PROGRAM OFFERED AT CINCINNATI MARATHON
CINCINNATI, OH The Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon is proud to announce an incentive program geared toward the faster or elite runner. The Course Bonus Program has been added to 3rd running of the Cincinnati Marathon to help create more of a field for the marathon without taking away from the everyday runner's experience.
"It will add another level of excitement to the whole race," commented Rich Williams, race director. "The Cincinnati Marathon is a fun race for the novice or everyday runner and this now adds some incentive for the more experienced elite athlete."
A $5000 bonus will be awarded to an athlete accomplishing one of the following during the running of the 3rd Annual Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon on May 6, 2001:
A female who is in one of the top five female positions at the half way point of the marathon and breaks the female course record set in 2000 by Rebecca Gallaher, 2:49:32;
A male who is in one of the top five male positions at the halfway point of the marathon and breaks the male course record set in 1999 by Elly Rono, 2:21:15.
For runners interested in this program, contact Rich Williams, race director, at 513-719-1240.
