Well my running friends, it’s that time of year again….Spring! which means there are a million different opportunities to achieve those once unobtainable goals. Are you gonna run your first 5k?, how about trying your hand at a smooth 10k? or go the distance with a half-marathon! OK maybe on your bucket list this year is to do what few can do… a full marathon.
Whatever inspires you to go the distance, whatever reason’s you have, that gets you out the door for those 5AM training runs, those hard fought training miles, the stats you keep to improve your times..always going for that PR, whatever the reason, just enjoy this awesome sport and find yourself being tested and defined.

A lovely run around and through Over the Rhine followed by a Street Fair with Live Music, Food, Beer, Art and Fine Craft!
The event on a whole is hands down one of Cinci’s best. Great running route, great music, great vendors and an atmosphere that is welcoming and joyful with the coming of summer.
Come down for the whole day or swing by for some music and shopping after the run.

Yes the marathon season will mostly be in full swing by the time the Flying Pig Marathon takes place. Maybe go check out Bob Roncker’s and see if a new pair of running shoes are in order join a running group or sign up for a few fun running events. All in all it should be a fun year to create some new PR’s and go beyond your comfort level and run some distances you haven’t ever tried. Good luck I’ll see you out there.
