Train for the Flying Pig!
McAuley is once again hosting a training program for anyone interested in running or walking a Flying Pig race May 5-6.
Training is for all levels (beginner to experienced) but we will start with a 3-mile run/walk and increase mileage each week. The group runs/walks leave from McAuley each Saturday morning at 8 a.m. starting on January 20. Our program lasts for 16 weeks which allows for a slow progression to avoid injury and retain participants. Our focus will be on training for the half marathon and the full marathon relay.

Our training has already started but if you are interested in joining, please email Brigitte Foley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
***Running a Flying Pig event but can't join us for the training?
McAuley is an official Flying Pig partner charity so you can designate a portion of your registration fee to go to McAuley.
***Not running/walking but still want to participate?
We will also need at least 50 volunteers during the half marathon on May 6, 2018! Cheer on runners and walkers at mile 12.5 of the Flying Pig half marathon while helping to raise money for McAuley. You will receive a free t-shirt and it's a great way to see runners and walkers on the course right before they finish! More information will be available in March 2018.
