Flying Pig sells out 5K, 10K races


Officials with the Flying Pig Marathon say Saturday's Flying Pig 5K and Toyota 10K races are both sold out.

According to Executive Director Iris Simpson-Bush, there will be no on-site registration available on Saturday.

A maximum of 5,500 participants were planned for the 3.1 mile race, and officials say those spots were filled at the P&G Health and Fitness Expo on Friday.

In addition, the 10K race sold out due to an 'overwhelming response'. A maximum of 5,700 runners were allotted for the 6.2 mile race.

"Last year's Flying Pig 5K had a field of 4,198 but we prepared for an additional number due to the growing support for the Marathon in light of the Boston Marathon Tragedy," said Simpson-Bush.

The sell outs are based on course capacity and number of medals and T-shirts available for participants.
