Happy National Pig Day: March 1


We are taking the opportunity to celebrate the business side of the Flying Pig Marathon. Did you know that the pork industry represents a $44 billion industry? As Cincinnati’s largest one-day sporting event, the Marathon provides $10 million in economic impact for our community.

Here are a few opportunities that you and your company can get involved in the Flying Pig Marathon to support local charities and promote your brand at the same time.

Greening ’o the Pig

We’re continuing our ‘green’ effort with recycling and conservation efforts throughout Marathon weekend, April 30-May 2. Watch for our recycling bins and other ‘green’ efforts throughout the event and help the Pig get ‘greener’ every year!

Paycor Corporate Relay

Get your co-workers and put together a four-person relay team and challenge your fellow employees or clients to do the same in the Paycor Corporate Relay! And here’s the fun part: Half of your entry fee goes to charity, either the charity of your team’s choice, or to the Flying Pig Charities, of which there are more than 120. So get moving, do some good and join the Paycor Corporate Relay. Sign up today!

Mile Sponsorship

Want to cheer on your fellow workers, neighbors and friends? Then sponsor a mile along the route and show your Pig Pride! Mile sponsorships allow you to pick out a theme, deck out a stretch along the street, and make it your own as you support your friends and other runners during the Marathon. It’s a fun, affordable way to get your entire company involved in Marathon weekend. Contact Lindsey Manck at

P&G Expo

Is your company involved in the health and fitness industry? Then you might want to reserve space at the Flying Pig P&G Health & Fitness Expo on Friday, April 30 and Saturday, May 1 at the Duke Energy Center downtown. More than 45,000 people will walk by your display those two days, and they’re all interested in health, nutrition and exercise. If you want to be part of the Expo, contact Lindsey at

Goodie bag gifts

All of our runners and walkers get goodie bags filled with all kinds of samples and information. If you have products or events you’d like to get in front of more than 23,000 participants, we’d like to help you get in touch with that audience. Drop a note to Denise at and find out how you can get involved.

Be part of the WLWT coverage

Our television partner, WLWT, airs the Marathon live from 6:25 a.m. until 9 a.m., but also carries lots of Marathon information, including training tips, videos and blogs for weeks before the Marathon. Be part of the Pig by becoming a sponsor of the digital and TV coverage by contacting Meg Perez, Digital Account Executive, WLWT-TV, at  (513)412-5629  (513)412-5629.
