Flying Pig Marathon sets record numbers
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- More than 36,000 runners ran in this year's Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon making it the largest ever in Cincinnati. Runners from all over, representing 19 different countries, took off around 6:30 this morning and in the end it was a familiar face winning on the men's side.
Sergio Reyes took home his third straight flying pig title. It was his slowest winning time of the three titles, but he still dominated the race! This is also his fourth overall flying pig marathon win.
On the women's side, it was Amy Robillard who cruised for the win. She finished the race in about two hours and fifty-six minutes.
In the half marathon Tilahun Abebe won on the men's side and Juliana Madzia, a UC student, won on the women's side.
That win came despite Madzia and roughly 50 other runners accidentally going off course by nearly half a mile.
The race started downtown, then went up through Hyde Park to Mariemont and then back downtown.
