Thank you for registering to participate in the 2021 Flying Pig Marathon Spring Virtual Event. We are grateful for your support as we made the difficult decision to transition the Flying Pig Marathon weekend to a virtual event.
How do I participate in the Virtual Event?
The Flying Pig Virtual Event allows you to complete the race on your own. You will run or walk the race distance at your own pace and at a time and location of your choosing. You choose your own race day from now until June 15 and your own starting line, whether it’s a treadmill, a park or your neighborhood street.
May 2 Finish Line Opportunity
Planning to complete your event on the first Sunday of May? Join us for a pop up finish swine event on May 2 between 9:30am and 11am at the Banks on Freedom Way. Our mascots and staff will be there to cheer you on!
Official Pig Works app, driven by TQL
The app includes suggested routes our team created, photo frames, playlists and more!
Follow us and engage on our Facebook and Instagram pages and use #runflyingpig! We also encourage you to join our Virtual Group on Facebook. Share photos of your training and race day and offer encouragement to other participants. Each Wednesday from April 28 through June 16, we’ll select a weekly “Pig Pic of the Week” from Instagram and the virtual Facebook community to win a prize.
We encourage you to submit your results by June 15, 2021. You can submit them manually using the link below, or through the ASICS Runkeeper App.
Please note: Virtual participants are not eligible for overall or age group awards.
For issues or questions concerning the Runkeeper App and results submission please email support@

Pig Works is a 501(c)(3) and helps more than 300 charities raise money through our events. By choosing to complete your event virtually, you are contributing to the $1 million raised each year by our charity partners. Especially at this time, each charity dollar means so much, and we thank you on behalf of each group that uses the Pig Works events as a fundraiser.
Virtual participants have the option to create a pledge page through their Race Roster account for an affiliated charity of their choice. This pledge page can be easily customized and shared via social media. For more details on how to create a pledge page and help raise money for a Pig Works Charity, please visit this link.
Virtual Event Tips:
- Train properly (just as you would for an in-person event). Our partner, Fleet Feet offers a great virtual training experience!
- Plan your route (check here for our suggestions)
- Prepare for the weather & coordinate your wardrobe accordingly
- Plan your hydration – carry water and Gatorade
- Plan your fuel – carry some liquid energy or GU
- Wear your Road iD
- Take a mask!
- Carry your phone with the Pig Works app to track your run, upload your results and take your finish line selfie!
- Tell a friend or family member where and when you are heading out for your virtual run
- And don’t forget, if you don’t feel well… stay home and plan your run for another day
Rules and Regulations
The Flying Pig Marathon weekend will now occur at the location and time of your choice between May 1 and June 15. Pig Works is not responsible for your safety while running virtually. We specifically request that you do not use any of our race day routes as they are not pedestrian safe without the usual street closures and police assistance with traffic. Please also adhere to the physical distancing mandates and guidelines in your area and do not attempt a group run.
Thank you again for participating in the Flying Pig Marathon, powered by P&G, as part of a virtual event in 2021! We’ll keep you updated on all things Flying Pig and hope to see you at one of our start lines again soon!
