CINCINNATI (FOX19) - The Flying Pig and other in-person Pig Works races have been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Instead, virtual versions of the Flying Pig Marathon and Bockfest 5K will be held on their originally scheduled weekends.

Registration for both races is open now.

Organizers say they hope to hold an in-person Flying Pig Marathon and Queen Bee Half Marathon the weekend of Oct. 29-31.

“We also want to recognize the dozens of corporate partners, thousands of volunteers, and numerous community partners for their on-going loyal support of the ‘Pig,’” Iris Simpson, Bush President & CEO of Pig Works, said.

The Flying Pig and Queen Bee marathons were canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19.
