Paycor, a founding sponsor of the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon, powered by P&G, recently announced that it will increase its support of the Marathon and become the title sponsor of the Flying Pig Marathon’s half marathon race.

Beginning this year, the 13.1 mile race will now be called the Flying Pig Paycor Half Marathon. The event will be held as part of the Flying Pig weekend, which takes place April 29-May 1, 2016.

The Flying Pig Marathon was founded by Paycor CEO Bob Coughlin. The company has been a major supporter of the race since its inception in 1999 and Coughlin is a board member.

“We are excited for Paycor to sponsor the half marathon, our fastest growing race by participation numbers,” said Iris Simpson Bush, executive director. “We wouldn’t have the Flying Pig Marathon without Bob Coughlin’s vision and we thank him for his continued generosity.”

We are pleased to support this great and worthwhile community event,” said Coughlin. “Our Paycor associates enjoy participating in Marathon weekend and we're looking forward to helping the Marathon continue its mission of producing a world-class event.”
