Pig Man Running

It's an exciting time as we get close to the 15th annual Flying Pig Marathon weekend powered by P&G! We have so much planned for the weekend, and we're excited to have you join us.

What You'll See Along the Course

Besides the 100 entertainment acts along the marathon and half marathon courses, we'll have stops along the way to keep you fueled and energized. We will have orange slices provided by Green BEAN Delivery at marathon miles 15, 19 and 24 and half marathon miles 9 and 11. Our "Pork-n-Beans" station with Starburst jelly beans will be at marathon mile 13. You will find the Sam's Club and Walmart "Pig Newton" station with fig newtons and assorted fruit at marathon mile 24. Powerbar Energy gels will be at marathon miles 18 and 22.

For your friends and family following you along the course, party zones for spectators with assorted food will be located at marathon miles 5, 9 and 21 and half marathon miles 5 and 12.

Foxy Shazam Concert Party With the Pig

The party starts early this year with the Little Kings Mile on Friday night, then the community party free and open to the public immediately after, featuring Foxy Shazam. The party continues Saturday afternoon with music and food at the Smale Riverfront Park along the river at Mehring Way and Joe Nuxhall Way. Then Sunday morning, our new buffet breakfast at the Christian Moerlein Lager House starts at 6 a.m. and runs until 10 a.m. Friends and family can grab an early breakfast and watch you and the rest of the field streak by along Mehring Way. We'll have lots for you and your friends and family to do throughout Pig weekend!

The Pig Promotes Healthy Living in the Community

The Flying Pig Marathon continues to promote a healthy lifestyle in the Cincinnati region, with trainings, incentives, and outreach alike. Tri-State Running Company will provide support for First-Time Marathoners through their newsletters and race weekend support. The Flying Pig Team Wellness Initiative, sponsored by UC Health, is a group of health and fitness experts offering wellness advice throughout the year. Our Skyline Chili High School Challenge, presented by Fleet Feet, encourages students between 13 and 18 years to participate in the Flying Pig 5K and Redlegs Run, while raising money for their schools and volunteering in the community . Finally, the Ernst & Young 26th Mile helps kids in areas of healthy eating, reading, and exercise, in order to complete the final mile run of the full marathon distance by Race Weekend. Come support a growing Flying Pig during our 15th Anniversary Race Weekend--we're bursting at the seams!
