In this inaugural event, FC Cincinnati Foundation (FCCF) and the Flying Pig Marathon are joining forces to host the best FCC watch party of the year! Before the July 13th away match against the Chicago Fire, we’ll host a 3-mile run/walk and post-race watch party at The Banks. This event will include food and beer vendors, a big screen display of the game, an e-MLS interaction, and more! Through this event, Flying Pig Charities and the FCCF are working to raise money for their various causes and beneficiaries.

Race Start: 7:00pm • Gametime: 8:00pm



Participants will complete 3 miles in preparation for watching the Orange and Blue collect three points against the Chicago Fire. The downtown course will start and finish near the Banks where the post-race watch party will be hosted.

Since this is the first year of this race, there are no historical results. One result we know to be true is that everyone will have a great time. We’re bringing the energy of The Bailey to The Banks in this inaugural 3-miler and watch party. And since this race is a rare 3-miler, and not 3.1 miles, your result can be your personal best at that distance. Who needs the .1 anyway?
