10th Annual Flying Pig Marathon

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

Welcome to Day 15 of our daily e-mail blasts to help you prepare for the 10th annual Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon events.

So what's your personal goal at this year's Flying Pig Marathon? Here's why Amber Kilgore from Northville, Michigan is running: ..."This will be my fifth marathon and I chose it because my best friends from college live in Cincinnati. My goal beat Oprah. Yes, I have run four marathons and am slower than Oprah. She can have more money, more friends, more shoes, better trainers etc., than me but she cannot be faster than me! I think her time is 4:29 and my fastest thus far is 4:35. I think she might be eating my dust soon...!" Why are you coming to the Pig this year? Email us at along with your contact information.

Pig Points

Attention relay runners: When you finish your segment, make sure you take the relay bus back to the finish line area. That is where you will get your relay medal, your finishers' shirt and all the food and goodies you get as a Flying Pig Marathon finisher! Don't miss the party, come down to the finish line and celebrate with your relay team.

Flying Pigs at the Ball Park

Celebrate with the Cincinnati Reds the day after the Marathon! The Reds are celebrating Flying Pig Marathon night at Great American Ball Park on Monday, May 5th as the Reds take on the Cubs. The first 500 to show up get to parade around the field just before the game. For your Flying Pig tickets, go to and fill out the special ticket form.

The Greening 'o the Pig

When you pick up your one-of-a-kind collectors' edition Flying Pig Marathon poster, note that the poster materials come from recycled paper. Thanks to Zumbiel Cincinnati for making sure the Pig stays 'green' in 2008!

Cincinnati USA puts the fun in the run!
