ABOUT THE RACE
Race in two states at once!
The Flying Pig 10k course starts near Paul Brown Stadium and takes you across state lines and back along the Ohio River.
See Cincinnati up close as you run through the Central Business District and from afar as you cross the river. Finish up with a jaunt past the ballpark and along the Ohio River Trail.
It's the cities biggest party weekend and you can be a part of it!

At Sierra Club, while we're working to save the planet, it's critical that we find partners who are doing the same. Flying Pig is committed to being a sustainable event and is certified by the Council for Responsible Sport as a Gold Level sustainable event.

WHY FUNDRAISE WITH TEAM SIERRA
It's clear that the climate crisis is not just one of the greatest threats we face: it's already impacting the people and places we love. Our air, water, and home are threatened — and it's time to act.
The crisis may feel daunting, but we can do something about it.
We know that Team Sierra teammates thrive on big goals and meaningful work. In 3 short years, we've raised over $1 million dollars to support the Sierra Club — the nation's largest grassroots environmental organization — and its work protecting wildlife and wild places, advancing clean energy solutions, and making the outdoors more accessible.
