Registration Opens for Inaugural 5K Fun Run

Cincinnati, Ohio (January 19, 2004) - Mail-in registration is now available for the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon inaugural 5K and Family Festival, in association with girls!CAN, presented by CiN Weekly, to be held Saturday, May 1, 2004 along Cincinnati's riverfront.

"Many runners, and their families, had requested a 5K event during Marathon weekend," said Iris Simpson-Bush, executive director. "We think the 5K on Marathon Saturday will make the weekend activities even more of a fun, family event."

The 5K Fun Run will start at 11 a.m. on Saturday along Pete Rose Way, east of the Montgomery Inn Conference Center. The course follows Pete Rose Way and Mehring Way west, and will pass the Cincinnati Reds' Great American Ball Park and the Cincinnati Bengals' Paul Brown Stadium before turning around and finishing at the Marathon finish line at Yeatman's Cove.

The 6th annual Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon will be run on Sunday, May 2, 2004, with the Kahn's Flying Piglet Fun Run, presented by The Cincinnati Enquirer, and new 5K and Fun Festival scheduled for Saturday, May 1.
