CINCINNATI -- We are less than three months and counting until the 20th Annual Flying Pig Marathon. Now is the time of year thousands run to the frozen sidewalks and start training for the race that is part of the fabric of the Tri-State.

Executive Director of the Flying Pig, Iris Simpson Bush, calls the Pig an "iconic" event for the community. The Flying Pig is expecting a record number of participants in 2018. Early projections show possibly more than 42,000 runners/walkers that weekend from the 1 mile, 5K, 10K half and full marathon.

That means there are 42,000 stories to tell leading up to the Flying Pig Marathon. This is the place for those stories.
