The Flying Pig, now in its 11th year, takes athletes of all skill levels through the streets of Cincinnati, Covington and Newport. The course starts west of Elm on Mehring Way and ends with a post-race party at Yeatman’s Cove featuring a variety of vendors. If you haven’t signed up to run in this classic Cincinnati event, there’s still late registration available. If you aren’t going to sign up, that’s OK. We won’t hold it against you and you can still cheer runners and walkers on from locations all over Greater Cincinnati. Head to the P&G Health and Fitness Expo at the Duke Energy Center from noon-7 p.m. Friday or 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday for late registration. There is no race-day registration. Also note that downtown streets will be closed early but will reopen by 8 a.m. on race day. I don’t know why you’d be driving downtown before 8 a.m. on a Sunday anyway.
