What is the Queen Bee?
Bee-lieve it, girlfriend. There’s a women’s half marathon in Cincinnati.
The Queen Bee Half Marathon is on a mission: to promote the fun of fitness while raising support and funds for local charities that focus on women. Race weekend will include plenty of pampering, swag, and fun—the perfect ingredients for a great girls’ weekend.
The course goes through some of Cincinnati’s historic and scenic neighborhoods and along the way you’ll be entertained by dozens of bands and DJs and refreshment zones that will ‘bee’ unique to the event.
When you cross the finish line you’ll enjoy special swag, chocolates, massages, the one of a kind Queen Bee medal and an incredible after party!
Not quite feeling up to the whole 13.1 miles? No problem. Buzz through Saturday’s 4-mile event through Downtown Cincinnati instead. You’ll be done in time to meet your half marathoners at the finish.
