CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon is adding a new female-themed half marathon this fall called the Queen Bee Half Marathon.
Organizers say the Queen Bee on Oct. 11 will follow a new half marathon course tour of Greater Cincinnati with a post party. The half marathon will feature a "Bee-u-tique" before the event highlighting pampering and wellness with a fashion show featuring leisure wear and sportswear.
"The Flying Pig Marathon is proud to offer this new half marathon, not just for women, but to all runners and walkers in Greater Cincinnati," Executive Director Iris Simpson-Bush said. "As in all our Flying Pig events, the primary aim is raising money for our charities but we want it to be a fun, 'girls' weekend' destination event."
Participants are encouraged to dress up in their favorite costumes and 'bee' part of the fun, with massages, chocolate, champagne and an after party.
The Flying Pig also will offer a four mile run/walk through downtown Cincinnati Saturday morning as part of the Queen Bee weekend.
