Elegant Mariemont condo

Written by: Sarah J. Dills

In Kentucky, the first weekend in May is all about watching the horses run…but here in Cincinnati, we like to watch the pigs fly.

This year marked the 18th anniversary of the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon, where over 39,000 runners competed in one of the weekend’s races. Of those people, only 4,737 were brave enough to attempt the full marathon… a 26.2-mile route exploring some of the city’s most beautiful neighborhoods.

And of those, Mariemont is always a favorite among the runners. The neighborhood shuts down for the day as spectators line the streets to cheer, hand out food (runners will find bacon during this stretch of the race), and offer support on one of the most mentally challenging legs of the race.
