The hills can be daunting but the support will carry you to the Finish Swine. I’ve done The Pig for 8 years; the half five time, the full once, the three-way once, and now the four-way. The swag is outstanding, the crowd is off the charts, and the bling is top notch. This organization knows what it takes to make a race the best!! The Pig will become an every year race, guaranteed.

This was my 8th running of the Air Force half marathon. They’ve worked through many of the logistical issues that have been encountered in the past for a smooth running race. People think of this course as flat, which it is compared to other courses, but don’t think that means it’s easy. IMO, the most difficult portion of this course is as you leave the base housing and the golf course and head off base. The crown of the road causes you to run on an angle to the left and then switches to an angle to the right as you run over the overpass. These heavy grades cause issues in my hips and continue to slow me down. My PR is 1:49 and that was the Flying Pig. The closest I’ve come to that at the AF is 1:52. Add this race to your list because the flyover and getting your medal from a service member (I got mine from a full bird Colonel this year and a two star General another year) is well worth it.

This is a great trail race with enough difficulty to keep your eyes on the ground to watch for tree roots. As a guy from Ohio I was not prepared for the sand which caused my calves to cramp but thankfully I wear compression sleeves. The swag is top of the line with more than you would expect. Post race food was phenomenal. I recommend this as a bucket list and I will be back for the full or ultra. A very well run and orchestrated race in a great National Forest.

I’ve completed 6 Flying Pig Halfs and decided to make this my first full. As with the other 6, the race support was OUTSTANDING. If you go hungry or get dehydrated it’s your fault. There’s water/Gatorade stations every mile and food everywhere (Yes, we had bacon). The crowds stand 5-6 deep in most places and they cheer you on so there’s little chance of defeat. Don’t be afraid of the hills, you can do it! I describe the entire weekend as a party with a race through the middle of it. Add this to your race bucket list, you won’t be disappointed because they know what they are doing!!!

This is a well organized race with outstanding scenery. If you don’t train hills you will pay for it especially on Peakwood. They aren’t kidding on the 3,400+ feet of elevation change but it’s well worth the pain. There is solid support throughout but since you are running through a National Park you will have areas where there is little crowd support but the view is worth it. The neighbors come out to help you along the course too. Be sure to grab a mimosa as you head down Mill Mountain. Add this one to the bucket list because it’s a “PSH, Hills? I run mountains!!!” kind of race. The post race refueling includes chocolate milk!!!!
