When you pick up your goodie bag at this year's Bob Roncker's Running Spot Health & Fitness Expo, make sure you find your new "Piggy Backer" card! This little piggy will make you squeal all the way to the bank with savings, discounts and freebies from Cincinnati area merchants, just for being a participant in the Flying Pig Marathon festivities! Click here for more information on the Piggy Backer program and a list of participating sponsors.
We're missing only four more states to finish our "50 state flight," with the first registrants from each state receiving special recognition and a '50 state flight' T-shirt. So if you know anyone in South Dakota, Idaho, Wyoming or Hawaii, encourage that person to sign up today for the Flying Pig Marathon and be a member of the "50 State Flight" club!
As usual, entries are flying in, especially for our new Half Marathon presented by National City. If you're planning on being part of the Pig, now's the time to get your registration in. Click here for registration information and an on-line form, or call 513-721-PIGS for more information. See you on Flying Pig Marathon weekend!
