We hope you have one for yourself, or a family member, along Sunday's Flying Pig routes.

Just email information to We'll need to know the participant's first and last name, your contact information, the slogan you want and in which event your participant will be doing. Time's running out to get your Swine Sign, so make sure you contact us today.

Paycor Help a Charity, Run the Pig!

There is still time for you and three of your buddies to sign up for our Paycor Corporate Relay. The relay team designates a specific charity to receive its funds, or you can designate your team's donation to Flying Pig Charities. Do good for your company's favorite charity and have fun at the same time by signing up your team for the Paycor Corporate Relay.

The Pump N' Run Option... for all Ages and Genders!

Whether you are a novice weight lifter or a seasoned gym rat, the Pump N' Run option will give you a unique "full fitness experience" at the Flying PIG! When selecting this option, the participant gets weighed in, and bench presses a percentage of their weight as many times as possible, using a weight lifting formula based upon their age and gender. If you are running the 5K or 10K, you receive 30 seconds off their run time for each bench press competition, and if you are running the Half or Full Marathon, you receive 2 minutes per bench press repetition. There are individual personal achievement awards (10-Pump Club, 20-Pump Club and 30-Pump Club medals), as well as competitive awards (Fastest "Net Run Time" medals which is the actual run-time reduced by the pump handicap). The event is designed for people of all ages and gender... and has had women and men as young as 15 years all the way to 78 years old participate! Go to to learn more!
