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

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

Welcome to Day 17 of our daily e-mail blasts to help you prepare for the 10th annual Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon events.

We've mentioned the Flying Pig 'Streakers' in earlier Squeals—those are the hardy souls who will be running their 10th Flying Pig Marathon. Here's one 'Streaker' story from DeWayne Stansell: "I love running the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon. This will be my tenth completed marathon and the tenth running of the Flying Pig, so I am doing ten-for-ten. I am so thankful to all the people who come out and support us and all the volunteers that help make this marathon possible. This is my favorite marathon to run and the People of Cincinnati are such wonderful hosts. Cheers and I will see you at the finish line."

We'll look for you, DeWayne! What is your Pig story? Email us at along with your contact information.

Pig Points

Again this year, we'll have more than 60 'entertainment zones' lining the course of the full and half marathons on Sunday. The e-zones range from fully equipped bands, to Team in Training's "Scream Teams." They're there to make your event more fun than ever.

Packet Pickup Reminders

Remember to come to the Flying Pig Marathon Health & Fitness Expo presented by National City on Friday, May 2 or Saturday, May 3 to pick up your event entry number, last minute instructions, and information. Also, for those of you who want to register in either the Athena or Clydesdale divisions, you will be able to do so at the Expo. And this reminder, there is no morning-of packet pickup for the Sunday events, so if you are registered for Sunday, you MUST pick up your information by Saturday at 7 p.m.

The Greening 'o the Pig

The Flying Pig Marathon suncatcher is handmade of 100% post-consumer recycled bottle glass by the Glass reFactory, a non-profit business in Georgetown, Ohio. In addition to the Flying Pig charities, your purchase will help Adams Brown Recycling provide a wide variety of recycling services in Western Appalachian Ohio.
