Although it was once just a dream and a course route scrawled on a bar napkin by a group of local runners, the Flying Pig Marathon has evolved into a renowned running festival with a memorable theme, an emphasis on community and a weekend’s worth of races for athletes of all ages and abilities. The Flying Pig Weekend starts Friday and culminates Sunday with a half-marathon, relays and the 16th running of the marathon.

This year, more than 30,000 are expected to cross “finish swines” during the citywide celebration. Before the runners take their marks for the much-anticipated marathon Sunday, the Flying Pig Weekend will keep runners moving with the P&G Health & Fitness Expo Friday and Saturday; and a variety of shorter runs Saturday, including the IAMS Flying Fur Run, followed by a Flying Pig Pasta “Pig Out.”
