CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The largest field in the history Flying Pig Marathon has some familiar faces taking home the title and a newcomer bursting onto the scene. 

Sergio Reyes won his fifth Flying Pig Marathon after a one year hiatus from the race with a time of 2:26:03. 

“I’ve never won any marathon I’ve done five times, so this one is special. I’m not getting any younger,” said the 34-year-old Reyes, “so I don’t know how many more I’ll do, but this will always be in my heart as a great event. I love supporting the running community here in Greater Cincinnati.”

In the women's marathon, first-timer Anne Flower, 26, won with a time of 2:55:46. Flower, an Anderson High School grad, bested her high school track and field coach, Kerry Lee. Lee crossed the finish line in 3:07:16. 

"I heard it was a great race, so I decided to enter,” said Flower, who passed Lee at around mile 23 to take the lead for good. “It was awesome to hear so many people cheering for all the runners.” 

David Bea and Amy Robillard won the half marathon. Bea, 36, of Cincinnati, came in second in the full marathon last year and took home the half title this year. 

This was Robillard's third half marathon title.
