What's Your Name?

Everyone will know your name, if you put it on your running bib! The deadline to add your name to the bib is Thursday, April 3. Make sure you register in time to get your name on your bib so everyone can cheer you on at the Pig!

Party With the Pig

Friends and family wanting to find the best spots on the course to watch the full or half marathon will want to visit one or more of the four Spectator Party Zones. The party zones will provide complimentary refreshments and entertainment for spectators to enjoy as they watch and cheer on the participants. Walk, drive, or take a special Metro bus to the party zones. Check out the Spectator tab of the Pig's website or click here for complete information on locations and directions.

P&G Health and Fitness Expo

This year the P&G Health and Fitness Expo is so big, it covers two buildings! Packet pickup this year will be at the Millennium Hotel ballroom, just east of the Duke Energy Convention Center, then you'll return to the Convention Center to visit our vendors and pick up your shirts and other swag! We'll chat about the Expo and other changes this year during our Thursday Twitter chat, at noon EDT this Thursday, April 3, @runflyingpig. If you have any questions about the Expo or other weekend events, join us for our Thursday Twitter on-line chat!

IAMS Flying Fur Run The Pig is Going to the Dogs

Our FPFAQ (Flying Pig Frequently Asked Question) Is the Same As Last Week:

Q: I've already registered, but can I still switch races?

A: Participants may switch races. You must notify the Flying Pig office of your request with the Switching Request Form by April 11, 2014. After that date, switches may be done at packet pick-up at the Expo. There is a $10 fee to do so, along with any applicable entry fee difference. The fee increases to $15 at the Expo.

Metro Logo Metro puts extra pork in its day pass for Race Day!

Feeling piggish? Now there are two ways to use the special day Flying Pig Day Pass. Spectators can avoid detour headaches while watching the race up close and squealing for their runners and new this year, marathon participants can give their little piggies a rest and ride hassle-free to the starting line early Sunday morning on May 4.

Runners can park their cars free behind Tri-County Mall, conveniently located at the junction of I-275 and I-75, and catch the Early Morning Flying Pig Express. To return, runners can jump on the Rt. 78 Springdale - Vine and be dropped off at the bus stop at Kemper in front of the mall.

For only $4.50, the pass is available online at Don't be left behind -- the Metro bus will leave Tri-County Mall at 5:15 a.m. Drop off near the start downtown.

Why ride the bus? We say "Swine not?"

Reserve your seat on the bus today!
