Why Pig Works?
Well, after years of quiet but steady growth the Flying Pig folks (that’s us) realized we were running more than just a marathon. We were producing events and experiences for a whole host of audiences, experience levels, and flavors in Cincinnati and the surrounding areas.
So…The Board of Directors of the Cincinnati Marathon Inc., (the formal-sounding parent company of the Flying Pig Marathon, the Queen Bee Half, the TQL Beer Series and the FCC3), is proud to announce that the non-profit organization producing all of the above events, will now be known as PIG WORKS. The organization that started with a little hometown marathon over twenty years ago has now established a whole diverse family of participatory events and a growing philanthropic footprint. This new name will better represent this growth and our ongoing work.
Pig Works is a race experience company with three goals:
Create fun participatory sporting events for individuals and groups of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds
Contribute to charitable causes that support the growth and development of our community here in Cincinnati and beyond
Promote a lifestyle that weaves movement and health into the fiber of our community and extends beyond the bounds of our event days
The new organization name will enable growth in participation and charitable giving while allowing each existing beloved event brand to retain its name, personality and mission. So don’t worry, the Flying Pig Marathon is not changing!
