The Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon is an annual 26.2 mi race run the first Sunday of May in Cincinnati, Ohio. Its first run was in 1999. It is the 3rd-largest first-time marathon in the United States and had nearly 5000 finishers in 2008.
he Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon is a beautiful course, which “flies” along the streets of Cincinnati, Covington, Newport, Mariemont, Fairfax and Columbia Township. Our course presents a well-balanced, diverse tour of some the best neighborhoods in the area.
The course will close on a continuous pace of 16:00 minutes per mile. Anyone who cannot maintain the 16:00 minute per mile pace must move to the sidewalk as the course closes to allow regular traffic through. Runner services cannot be guaranteed for participants beyond the 16:00 minute per mile pace.
