2018 RCGC Flying Pig Updates

Here are a couple of updates about the Runners' Club of Greater Cincinnati's involvement in the 18th Annual 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 2018. 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. 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 or do the following:
    1. Go to the Flying Pig Volunteer Registration Page.
    2. Click the Sign-up with registered group.
    3. Find and select Runners' Club of Cincinnati from the group list.
    4. Complete volunteer information.
    5. Use Runnerclub as the group password when asked near the end of the form.
  • Piggest Raffle Ever -  The Runners' Club of Greater Cincinnati is also part of the Piggest Raffle Ever with the Flying Pig Marathon for 2016  Adopt a pig for $5 for a chance to to win a 2 year lease on a Toyota Prius, $10,000 Cash ($5,000 to the winning ticket holder and $5,000 to the charity who sold the ticket) or  a $1500 Cincinnati experience.   To help out, select Runners' Club of Greater Cincinnati as the charity at  when you adopt a pig and the club gets a portion of the proceeds.

  • Booth at the Flying Pig Expo - RRCA, The club's parent organization has a booth at the 2018 Flying Pig Expo which is on Friday May 5, and Saturday May 6. The booth is located in the center of the action. Working the booth is quite easy. You just tell people about the RRCA, hand out club info, promote the Memorial Day Race, and answer any other questions that they may have about the club or RRCA. Since we are partnering with the RRCA , we need about 1-2 volunteers to help  man it. We need volunteers to work it on Saturday. If you can help out on Saturday, let us know what times you are available by sending an email to
