Cincy Chic: Tell us more about Bee-you-tique and Queen Bee Half Marathon, the newest additions to the Flying Pig Marathon!
Iris Simpson-Bush, Executive Director of the Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon: This is the first fall event that the Flying Pig Marathon is managing. The Marathon powered by P&G is a year-round charity and community partner in Greater Cincinnati, and we wanted to add another event that will help our charity partners use yet another of the Flying Pig events to raise money for their causes.
