WARREN COUNTY OHIO --  The runners have spoken - and RaceRaves, the premier global race finder and reviews community, has named the Flying Pig Marathon the best marathon in the United States.

Winners were determined through an online poll conducted on from March 23-April 17, with thousands of runners from all 50 states and 45 countries casting their votes. writes: "Runners go hog wild for the Flying Pig, one of the most revered races in the country. Celebrating the city’s history of pork production, Cincinnati’s hometown marathon earns rave reviews for embracing its namesake, with start corrals known as “pig pens,” volunteers affectionately referred to as “grunts,” and a “finish swine” where finishers collect pig-themed swag. The scenic urban course (which briefly crosses into Kentucky) and unrivaled crowd support help distract from the “miles and miles of hills,” while Skyline Chili Challenges are a popular way for runners to bring home more bacon. In a state with no shortage of first-class running events, the Pig leaves other races pink with envy." 

So, while the race itself is not in Warren County many who participate in it are. It's nice to know the best marathon in the U.S. is just a county away.
