10th Annual Flying Pig Marathon

13 Days until Flying Pig Marathon Weekend!
Flying Pig Marathon Greetings!

Welcome to Day 14 of our daily e-mail blasts to help you prepare for the 10th annual Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon events.

We mentioned that lots of people use the Pig for their favorite cause, and here's one example from Kelly Ross in Loveland, Ohio: "I am running the full marathon for a charity called Cure JM. My neighbor was diagnosed with Juvenile Myositis (JM) a few years ago, which is an autoimmune disorder mainly affecting the muscular system. I ran the 2006 Chicago marathon, which was their first fund-raiser ever. I decided to stay closer to home and run the Flying Pig (my last Pig was the first Pig!). If you would like to see my fundraising website, it is" Best of luck, Kelly! Why are you coming to the Pig this year? Email us at along with your contact information.

Pig Points

Did you know that it takes more than 3,500 volunteers to help make the "Pig" run each year? From 'ham' operators to water stop workers, thousands of Greater Cincinnatians give up their time and talents to help the Flying Pig Marathon go as smoothly as possible. Don't forget to thank the volunteers as you go by!

Turn by Turn Navigation

If you're not familiar with the event courses, from the Fleet Feet Sports 5K to the full Marathon, remember that you can see the course maps here or pick up a Spectator Guide while you're at the Flying Pig Health & Fitness Expo presented by National City to see the route.

The Greening 'o the Pig

When you're at the Finish Line and Victory Party areas, look for the recycling bins placed along the course by Keep Cincinnati Beautiful. Every piece of paper or plastic you recycle helps keep Cincinnati, and the "Pig," green for years to come.

Cincinnati USA puts the fun in the run!
