Flying Pig Announces Event Updates
12 Oct, 2020
It is with sadness and a heavy heart that the Board of Directors and staff of Pig Works have decided to cancel our remaining in-person 2020 events, including the Flying Pig Marathon and Queen Bee Half Marathon weekends and the Hudepohl 14K/7K Brewery Run.
We invite our participants to complete the events virtually, as your support is vital to the ongoing success of our non-profit organization. Registrants of each of the fall events will receive an email by July 10 detailing their options for participation, including a fun and engaging virtual experience, deferral to a future year or donating their registration fee.
“We have evaluated the COVID-19 health and safety protocols for running events, surveyed participants, and discussed options with our medical staff, government leaders and other respected events in our industry,” said Iris Simpson Bush, CEO of Pig Works, “We came to the conclusion that, even with the implementation of best practices, altered starts, support stations and finish venues, we could not offer the safe and fun experience that our athletes, volunteers, sponsors and spectators so deserve.
“We are as disappointed as our participants to have to make this decision. We were holding onto hope and optimism for as long as possible, but in fairness to those training for the fall events, we feel this is the safe and responsible decision.”
Thank you for your support of our Pig Works events and we hope that you continue your health and fitness goals with us. We expect to offer all of our events in 2021 and will endeavor to make it a celebratory comeback year! Stay safe and healthy.
