16 Days until Flying Pig Marathon Weekend!
Flying Pig Marathon Greetings!

Welcome to Day 11 of our daily e-mail blasts to help you prepare for the 10th annual Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon events.

We know of at least two Marathoners who will make the Flying Pig Marathon their 100th event: Karen Cosgrove and Dr. Mark Lies. Anyone else you know of who will be a marathon "centenarian"? If so, let us know. Email us at along with your contact information.

Pig Points

A few airlines have hubs in Cincinnati, making air travel prices relatively reasonable. The airport is located south of the city in Northern Kentucky, but it is only a 10 minute drive to downtown Cincinnati. Transportation from the airport is available through Executive Transportation. Reservations are required. Call 1-800-990-8841 to make reservations.

For those staying at the recommended hotels, a rental car is not necessary as most of the Marathon Weekend activities are within walking distance (the Expo/Packet Pick-Up, start and finish). Also, the River Rats provide pedi-cab transportation in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati riverfront area.

Speaking of transportation...

After the Sunday events, shuttle buses will be provided for those who are returning to the downtown area and Northern Kentucky. The shuttle will pick up near the Finish Line at the paddlewheel near Broadway and Mehring Way, and drop off near the start at lot D before Paul Brown Stadium and hotels in Cincinnati Hyatt, Millennium, Netherland Hilton, Cincinnatian Hotel, and the Westin. Buses will also make trips to Northern Kentucky and drop off at the Marriott Rivercentre, Embassy Suites, Holiday Inn, Extended Stay, Courtyard by Marriott and Hampton Inn. The buses will run from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Buses will make their first stop at the start line.

The Greening 'o the Pig

Keep Cincinnati Beautiful is our Very Important Pig partner in our 'green' effort, providing recycling bins along the course, at the Finish Line and at the Victory Party. Keep Cincinnati Beautiful also helps beautify the course the week before the Marathon, so Cincinnati looks its best!
