CINCINNATI - Procrastinators still have a chance to register for the Flying Pig Marathon online after registration reopened through the race's website Wednesday.
Online registration closed April 19, but race organizers decided to reopen it again Wednesday to ease the registration lines at the P&G Health & Fitness Expo — the last opportunity for racers to sign up for the events — and because of the "tremendous outpouring of registration questions since online registration closed," according to the race's site. Registration opens Wednesday at noon and closes at 4 p.m. Friday, May 2, for Saturday events, or 4 p.m. Saturday, May 3 for Sunday events.
Runners and walkers will be able to register at expo prices and have their packets ready for pick up at the Late Online Registration line of packet pick-up. Late registration will cost $115 for the marathon and $105 for the half marathon. For the rest of the prices, go to http://www.flyingpigmarathon.com/race_information/registration/.
Registrants will receive a confirmation email following registration. They will need to print it off and bring it to the Late Online Registration table at the expo to pick up their bib packet.
Also, the race is now offering an opportunity to showcase support for Boston while helping the city, too. A t-shirt that says "Porkopolis to Beantown" with "Cincinnati Stands Boston Strong" underneath it will be sold with the money going to The One Fund. The fund was founded last week as a way to raise money to help the families most affected by the Boston Marathon tragedies.
