Half Marathon

The Queen Bee Half Marathon will be offered as an in-person and virtual event this fall. 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.

October 31 tbd 13.1

Packet Pick-up

At this time, all virtual Queen Bee participants can expect to receive their items via mail in November. Please note: international participants may experience additional mailing delays due to customs. 

If an in-person event and expo is able to be held, packet and premium pickup will be at The Bee-U-Tique Expo on Friday and Saturday. There, you’ll be able to purchase Queen Bee merchandise, visit with our vendors, and treat yourself to a little pampering before the event. You’ll feel “Bee-U-Tiful!”

We will NOT have registration available on-site before the race.

Can’t make it to the Bee-U-Tique? Someone may pick another participant’s packet by filling out the Packet Pick-up Authorization form.
