2014 RCGC Flying Pig Updates

Here are a couple of updates about the club's involvement in the Flying Pig Marathon. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
  • Club Fluid Station - The Club has a Flying Pig Fluid Station at mile 22. This is one of our largest volunteer opportunities of the year. We need about 40 volunteers; so please volunteer today. Volunteers receive a free t-shirt courtesy of the pig, free food and drink at the waterstop, the chance to socialize with other members in a relaxed informal setting, and the free entertainment value of watching the Mile 22 Fluid Station Captain freak out over what could happen in 2013. The 2008 waterstop dealt with fire, 2009 dealt with no uplifting music(Social Distortion is the last thing you want to hear at mile 22) until the marathon unexpectedly came through with the DJ, 2010 dealt with rain and flooding, 2011 dealt with being struck by lightning, 2012 and 2013 were relatively uneventful -. see what 2014 brings.   If you're running the full marathon, ask family, friends and coworkers to catch you at "Your water stop - Mile 22" or if you enjoy to watch people suffer, mile 22 is definitely the place to be. You can sign up to volunteer at our website. Sign Up Now.
    For 2014 we are looking for a theme! In 2012 it was: What High School Did You Go To? If you have an idea contact us at cincinnatirunning@gmail.com.
