10th Annual Flying Pig Marathon

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

Welcome to Day 13 of our daily e-mail blasts to help you prepare for the 10th annual Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon events.

Debbie Canvasser from Michigan is heading to Cincinnati for her first Pig, and here's why: "I starting a walking program with my husband, 2 sister in laws and my brother in law to raise money for Leukemia & Lymphoma in honor of my sister in law who is currently in remission from lymphoma. It has taken me 2 years to talk the group into going from Michigan to Cincinnati to participate in the Flying Pig. I have been training hard and can't wait for the race. I won't set any records, but I plan on having a really good time." Look for Debbie and her group over Flying Pig Marathon weekend, and let us know why you're coming to the Pig this year. Email us at along with your contact information.

Pig Points

Mail-in registration is now closed, but you can register for the Saturday Pig events in person, or for the Sunday events at the Flying Pig Health & Fitness Expo presented by National City on Friday, May 2 and Saturday, May 3. Remember, no on-site registration is available Sunday morning for the Sunday events.

"Swine Line" Breakfast available

Once again this year, a light breakfast will be available at the "Swine Line" tent by the Marathon finish line on Sunday morning. If you're waiting for your friends and family members to cross the finish line, wait for them in comfort with a bagel and fresh coffee. Stop by the tent Sunday morning and get your ticket for our "Swine Line" breakfast.

The Greening 'o the Pig

Look for the 'green' section of the Expo to see the latest in energy-saving ideas from our sponsors, including Duke Energy, Toyota and the City of Cincinnati. And you can help the cause, with a donation to our 'green' effort to plant more than 4,000 trees in Cincinnati. Just one more way that the Pig is going green!

Cincinnati USA puts the fun in the run!
