There, you're all set to have a great time, get some good exercise and help a good cause, all in one event. Visit's registration page to sign up.

Want to Switch events? There's a Form for That

Maybe you want to 'fly up' from the half marathon to full, or injuries have cut your training time down so you'd rather do the half but signed up for the full. Visit the registration page and switch out on line, or you can do it at the P&G Health & Fitness Expo at the Duke Energy Convention Center during Pig weekend.

Greening of the Pig The Pig Goes Green to Get You Around

Much like the Flying Pig Marathon has been about athletes and communities in motion, the past few years we've made considerable strides to make the movement of water, power, products and people more efficient during race weekend. Water will be in good supply, but we continue working to reduce our water footprint while using eco-friendly deodorizers in our portable toilets to reduce toxicity of waste water. You'll also notice a number of Toyota hybrids, bicycles and golf carts moving supplies during the weekend. For participants, our free carpool parking was a hit last year, with more than 400 permits claimed. So, you can leave your vehicle behind while enjoying the festivities and cheering on your favorite participant.

New for the 15th Anniversary Race Weekend!

We're partnering with our local transit agency, Metro, to offer low cost day passes to you can wander around Cincinnati freely on Sunday with just one ticket. To make your reservation for the carpool parking permit or the Flying Pig Day Pass, go to to the Flying Pig homepage.

The Flying Pig Green Team works to achieve recertification as a sustainable race event for its 15th Anniversary Weekend. Help us to make this year's Flying Pig Weekend the greenest ever, by changing how YOU get from there to here!
