The eighth annual Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon will feature three new initiatives sure to make the weekend fun and exciting for everyone! The ‘Old Spice High Endurance Mile to the Finish’ offers prizes for the fastest final mile among the full marathoners. Marathon Friday, May 5, is “Wear Your Pig Nose to Work Day,” as specially designed pig noses will be sold, with proceeds going to Flying Pig Marathon charities. And on Saturday, May 6, area motorcyclists are invited to take part in the first “Hog Rally” sponsored by Grand Victoria Casino. The ride will follow the marathon course, then travel to Northern Kentucky where it eventually will end at Newport on the Levee. Check out all the weekend Marathon activities, and watch for more information on how you can get involved!
Check out the latest i-Pig podcast presented by Old Spice High Endurance, as Marianne Pusz from Bob Roncker’s Running Spot offers tips on what to wear while training for, and running, the Flying Pig Marathon.
This year’s National City Health and Fitness Expo at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center, Covington, Kentucky, will feature the new “Expo-Tique,” with skin care tips, health screenings, cooking demonstrations and casual fashion for the female athlete. Whether you’re registered for the Pig, or you’re along to support the athlete in your family, come to the Expo-Tique for healthy living ideas!
The deadline to register before the next price increase is April 3, but don’t wait that long to sign up. Registrations are pacing well ahead of last year, so register today.
Attention charities and non-profits! Want to raise some funds by participating in the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon but the mere thought of running makes you grunt and groan? The Pig has your solution. We are looking for a few reliable volunteer groups to join in the fun of “running” the Pig without sweating like one. The Marathon will make a donation to your organization of behalf of a volunteer group of at least 30 people working as a unit in various positions throughout marathon weekend. We have both indoor and outdoor volunteer opportunities available. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 513-721-PIGS (7447) for more details.
Your training regimen isn’t complete without this year’s official 2006 Flying Pig Marathon training shirt! To see the new shirt, and to place your order, got to Flying Pig E-Store.
