The latest and greatest news from the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon
THE SQUEAL is the free e-mail newsletter of the
10th Annual Flying Pig Marathon

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

Welcome to Day 12 of our daily e-mail blasts to help you prepare for the 10th annual Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon events.

Here's why Megan Sanders of Columbus, Ohio is "big on the Pig"-- "I'm a Baby Pig! Although The Pig isn't my first half marathon I am squealing with excitement about this experience! I started running about 4 years ago and it has quickly become a major part of my life. As life hands us all stresses, tests, and challenges I have found calm, peace and centering through running - not to mention fun, excitement, accomplishment, and life." That's why Megan is part of the Pig. What's your reason? Email us at along with your contact information.

The Greening 'o the Pig

We're looking at new ways all the time to keep the Pig 'green' this year, including having our post-race awards made out of recycled materials! It's just another way that the Flying Pig Marathon is "going green" in 2008.
