October 9-11 Weekend Schedule

Below is our anticipated race weekend schedule for the weekend of Oct. 9-11 for the Flying Pig Marathon and Queen Bee Half Marathon events. We are working on approvals related to the start times and courses with multiple municipal, city and event partners. Should anything change, and as additional details are finalized, we will communicate those to our participants. Registration for the October events will reopen in mid-May.

Sunday, Oct. 11

  • Flying Pig Marathon, powered by P&G

  • Paycor Half Marathon & Queen Bee Half Marathon, empowered by P&G and Kroger (run concurrently on the Flying Pig Half course)

– This will look mainly like the Flying Pig Half Marathon, but we promise there will be fun perks and Queen Bee flavor for our Bees.

  • CityDash 4-Person Open Relay, Cincinnati Business Courier Corporate Relay and Ignite Women’s 4-Person Relay


  • Existing Skyline Chili 3-Way and 4-Way Challenges (including those with extra cheese remain available)
  • NEW: Snout & Stinger Challenge: complete the Queen Bee 4 Miler on Saturday and either the Flying Pig full or half marathon on Sunday. Challenge participants will receive an additional medal for completing both races in addition to participant amenities from each race. Participants will automatically be included in this Challenge upon registration for both events. Fall virtual participants will be eligible for the challenge, but spring virtual events will not be included. 
  • Interested in participating in both weekend challenges? You can “double count” the Sunday Flying Pig race if you wish to participate in both the 3-Way or 4-Way Challenges and the Snout & Stinger Challenge.
