Dogs will now fly, too, at Cincinnati's popular Flying Pig Marathon.
The IAMS Flying Fur run will be held on May 3 near the city's Purple People Bridge along the Ohio River. The marathon and half-marathon will be the following day.
For every dog registered for the event, IAMS will donate one large bag of pet food to the SPCA of Cincinnati.
Registration for a pooch and his or her owner will be $30.
Last year, the Flying Pig attracted a record 33,852 participants for all the weekend events, with runners from all 50 states and 16 countries.
