This Little Piggy Flies



Early each May, the City of Cincinnati shines as a series of neighborhoods strung together along the Flying Pig Marathon race route.

Inspiring and uplifting to witness, the people of Cincinnati are the true wings that lift these runners.  Annually, one day in May everyone is a winner.

Full, half, or relay, and encompassing every color, shape and size, runners for a lifetime and for only a day pace themselves to complete the hilly course.  A 5-star event for its panoramic views and energetic community support, participants are buoyed by the encouragement of tens of thousands of neighbors who wake at dawn and gather along the route to cheer, wave signs, ring bells and shout encouragement.

So wake up early, stroll to the end of your street with coffee in hand, and witness a magic combination that allows us all collectively – both on and off the road, to fly.
