BE RunProject: 2018 Flying Pig Training Program
You live here. You run here. So what do you do when your hometown celebrates the 20th anniversary of Flying Pig Marathon? You RACE here!
Let the BE RunProject be your guide and support for your training. Our training program is the ONLY complete training system in Cincinnati. Our program is more than just a group with weekly runs and a schedule of miles.
Why are we different?
We know that you’re going to need some encouragement and guidance, whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned runner looking to finish strong, achieve a PR, or qualify for Boston. The BE RunProject team will provide that encouragement and guidance by offering fully supported training runs led by a team of head coaches, assistant coaches and different pace groups. We will also provide you with water, nutrition, and motivation at our BE stops along the run routes.
We know that you want a training plan that doesn’t just provide weekly recommended running miles but rather provides specific workouts with guidance on intensity so that you’re not over-working or under-working. Our training plan progresses you through specific and objective driven workouts designed by an experienced coaching team who not only talk the talk but who are also experienced and successful runners themselves. Our team of coaches are led by run coaches who are certified with the Road Runners Club of America and USA Track and Field as well as our injury prevention and run form specialists.
We know that you want to feel healthy and strong during your training and racing. Our training program is the ONLY program in Cincinnati that fully supports the runner with a team of run experts in the field of injury prevention, injury rehab, sports nutrition, muscle recovery, and strength training. Our specialists have worked with everyone from weekend warriors to elite athletes and know what it takes to keep them healthy. You will get the benefit of our team’s expert knowledge and Beyond Exercise’s resources to improve your running abilities and reduce your risk of injury. We will be YOUR personal support crew and staff.
We know that you want to improve your running. Our program offers packages for those runners who want to be proactive in reducing their risk of injury while also learning how to increase their horsepower and efficiency. The BE RunProject Plus and Premium packages include extra services that will make you a stronger runner, a more efficient runner, and a runner with a lower risk of injury. With BE's Run Form Video Analysis and our Comprehensive Runner's Assessment you can take a more effective, customized and wholistic approach to your training.
We know that you want to be part of a team. You will receive weekly newsletters, have access to our private Facebook group, and receive special discounts from Beyond Exercise and Buckeye Running Company. When you run with us, you become part of the BE family. We support each other. We high-five each other. We curse the coach’s run routes together. We drink together. We laugh together. We wear the same colors. When people see you running, they know that you’re part of our team.
We know that you want to have fun. Running in the cold and dark is not fun, but doing it with our group turns that frown upside down. We are a serious program that doesn’t take ourselves too seriously. You’re guaranteed to smile and laugh.

...and with our subtle nod to the Pig, your goals will stay top of mind!
BE RunProject is open to athletes of all experience, whether you are looking to set a PR or just wanting to “finish” your first one.
- We suggest that someone participating in our Marathon Training Program be able to complete 6 miles when beginning the program and be able to start at approximately 15 miles per week in their training.
- We suggest that someone participating in our Half Marathon Training Program be able to complete 3 miles when beginning the program and be able to start at approximately 10 miles per week in their training.
- Due to the Flying Pig Marathon and Half Marathon requirement that state participants must maintain a 16 minute per mile pace to finish and avoid course closure, we also ask that you assume these same guidelines to help to ensure a successful program!
**We are providing OFF-SEASON preparation and support during our ‘Most Runderful Time of the Year’ running groups, which are currently meeting every Tuesday at 6:30 PM and Saturday at 8 AM at Beyond Exercise through the end of the year.
