Iris Simpson Bush
Iris Simpson Bush has been with the Flying Pig since its inception in a number of capacities, from board member to executive director. She has helped lead the “Pig” from a novelty themed marathon to a weekend sports festival that now is the 15th largest in the country. Along the way Iris has made sure the Marathon gives back to the community, helping charities and non-profits raise more than a million dollars each of the last five years. She also founded the Queen Bee Half Marathon and 4-Mile event in the fall with an emphasis on female runners and female-centric charities, giving women and girls the chance to participate in a race all their own. Iris is the immediate Past President of the Board of Running USA and in 2018 was named to the Running USA Hall of Champions, a prestigious group of industry-leading honorees who have served the sport with distinction.
