Event Information:

 

The Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon is a 26.2 mile race run the 1st Sunday of every May in Cincinnati, Ohio. It is the 3rd largest first-time marathon in the United States, and had nearly 5000 finishers in 2008. An official time from the Flying Pig Marathon can be used to qualify for the Boston Marathon. While the course varies from year to year, it generally involves running through downtown, Northern Kentucky, and eastern suburbs along the Ohio River. In recent years, it has included a 5K race, a 10K race, and a half-marathon in addition to the traditional marathon race. The 5K and 10K run on the day before the marathon. The half-marathon starts and finishes at the same locations as the full marathon, and runs on the same day as the full marathon. Total participation for all weekend events exceeded 22,000 in 2008.

The 2006 overall winner was Cecil Franke with a course record time of 2:20:25. The female winner that year was Norah Shire, who achieved a time of 2:56:19.
In order to run in the Flying Pig Full Marathon, one must be eighteen years or older on the date of the marathon. However, if one under eighteen years old has a permission slip signed by their parents as well as a signed waiver, they may run in the full marathon. The Flying Pig Marathon does not contain a Clydesdale or Athena division.

Downtown Cincinnati is focused around Fountain Square, a popular public square and event location. Cincinnati is home to numerous structures that are noteworthy due to their architectural characteristics or historic associations including the Carew Tower, the Scripps Center, the Ingalls Building, Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal, and the Isaac M. Wise Temple.
