The Flying Pig Marathon climbed to the top of The BibRave 100 as the #1 Marathon in America for the first time this year! This race has a wonderful reputation, and they sure do live up to it! According to runners, this detail-obsessed organization has thought of everything: “They have volunteers just to take pictures of you with your own camera at the top of the hardest hill that gets you to the best view. Who does that?”
In addition, they truly embrace and bring to life their adorable pig theme in every way possible! From starting corral “pig pens” to the finish line “finish swine,” the piggy theme gets all the runners in a curly-tailed frenzy! Runners were so hog-wild about this theme that the Flying Pig Marathon also earned a spot in the Top 10 list of Themed Races.
“The Pig weekend is nonstop fun and entertainment.”
With a weekend full of events that include a Flying Fur race for pups and Piglet races for the kiddos, we weren’t at all surprised to see this race claim a Top 10 spot in our Experience category as well.
Finally, the Flying Pig earned our Green Lion Award thanks to their “Greening the Pig” efforts to recycle, compost, and redistribute discarded clothing and leftover food to those in need. With all that good stuff in one race, we can see why so many little piggies head to Cincinnati!
Congratulations Flying Pig Marathon, the #1 Marathon race in America!
