CINCINNATI (AP) - Organizers expect more than 30,000 runners for weekend races highlighted by the annual Flying Pig Marathon on Sunday morning in downtown Cincinnati.

Last year’s races brought more than 36,000 participants, and Flying Pig officials think they will top that record this year. Participants have come from throughout the United States and from as far away as Australia and Brazil.

While 2014 women’s marathon winner Amy Robillard is back to defend her title, men’s winner Sergio (SIR’-gee-oh) Reyes (Ray-UHS’) will be unable to run in the 17th Flying Pig Marathon because of a foot injury.

There are several shorter races, from one mile to a half-marathon, and children’s events, too. The convention center is hosting a health and fitness expo.
