If the hills on this race course don’t kill you, you will absolutely love the Flying Pig. Excellent crowd support, great atmosphere, lots of fun. That being said, I think this is the toughest course I’ve run. It is not easy. But it was a blast and I plan to run it again for sure! I stayed in one of the suburban hotels overnight, but I’m not sure I will do that again. I will probably stay downtown next time. We thought we found good parking on race morning, but later received a bill in the mail for $80 for parking.
For how much it cost to park downtown, I think next time I will get a downtown hotel. But other than the parking, everything was great. Nice swag, too. Runners even get a frameable poster. The Flying Pig lived up to its reputation as a very fun race.

This is the only race I’ve ever attended where I’ve been laughing while waiting for the race to begin! If you like the movie at all, you will love this race. Runners get a free tour of the prison before or after the race. This alone is worth coming out for the race. There’s a costume contest every year where people are encouraged to dress up as prisoners or jailers to win prizes. The guy who runs in a full suit every year and who looks just like the character who played the warden in the movie is a riot. Half of the runners are called “inmates” and half are jailers. Whichever group of runners “beat the warden” get a discount on next year’s race. He’s so friendly and will pose with all the runners before, during (yes, runners take selfies with the warden while they pass him) and after the race. There are always nice prizes for the top three finishers in each age group. But the medals are the most amazing medals I’ve ever received. Check out the picture. They have multiple moving pieces (yes, the pick axe actually comes out of the Bible) and are the most creative medals I’ve ever seen. One warning about this race: This race is very hilly. I hate hills, but I run it every year anyway because the race is so much fun. Also, any money raised from the race is put towards keeping this historic landmark from being torn down.
