Flying Pig Marathon Greetings!

Welcome to Day 5 of our daily e-mail blasts to help you prepare for the 10th annual Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon events.

More than 70 charities and non-profits use the Flying Pig Marathon for their major fundraiser. Are you running for a cause this year? If so, let us know. Email us at along with your contact information.

Pig Points

For those carrying extra clothing, put your extra gear in the marked school buses along Central Avenue- look for the signs- and then retrieve your gear bag from the same bus from baggage claim, after the finish along the railroad tracks at Yeatman's cove. Anything left at the start will be donated to charity.

Calling All Volunteers

The Flying Pig Marathon always is looking for some help over the weekend. In fact, it takes more than 3,500 volunteers to keep the Pig running each year! If you're coming to the Pig to help cheer on a friend or family member, think about donating some of your time as well. That way you'll be part of the Pig, too! (and get a nifty Grunt shirt!)

The Greening 'o the Pig

If you're driving downtown to the marathon start area on Marathon Sunday, consider carpooling. Not only will you save money on parking, you'll save all-important resources. And you'll have a car full of people you can tell your running stories to, on the way back home!

Cincinnati USA puts the fun in the run!

Come early, stay late in Cincinnati USA. Catch a Reds game, visit Kings Island or go to the Cincinnati Zoo. Book your visit and buy tickets at
