Just like our sister event, the Flying Pig Marathon, the Queen Bee Half Marathon aims to be a green event. To make our carbon footprint as small as possible, we’ll have recycling receptacles at all venues, as well as along the course and in our entertainment zones.

The Flying Pig Marathon has won national recognition as a green event, and our sustainability plan for the Queen Bee Half Marathon will continue the Flying Pig’s commitment to be a responsible steward of our communities.


Of the 2.1 tons of waste from the 2017 Queen Bee, 1.65 tons were diverted from the landfill, resulting in a 78.56% diversion rate.
