Have you been dreaming about flying with the pigs in downtown Cincinnati, finishing a half marathon, or a full marathon?  We can help make your dreams come true!  Join us to train for the 26th Flying Pig Marathon and Half Marathon happening on Sunday May 5, 2024.  Our programs are designed to help get you to the finish line, but most importantly, our groups are fun.  We train hard but play harder.  The culture of our groups is to help and support each other.  From runners to walkers, coaches to participants and store staff, we all care for one another and thrive on the success of each and every one of our group members.  People who train with us make friends for life!
