5K Piggy Pilgrimage
From zombie races to foam runs – what’s next when it comes to the latest 5k event themes? Chances are, you probably wouldn’t have guessed it would be a Bacon Chase. This delicious 5k Piggy Pilgrimage event infuses two things that people typically do not often associate together – bacon and running. This exciting race is one that does not end with a trophy or medal. Instead, the run ends with a reward that is sure to have your mouth watering in anticipation during the entire 3.1 miles!
Bacon Chase Prizes
While hustling your ham as fast as you can, you will be showered with the benefit of unlimited bacon bits all the way to the finish line which will keep your spirits and appetite going. As soon as you gloriously step foot across the finish line, you will be rewarded with an unlimited amount of crispy, delicious bacon strips as well as a nice Bloody Mary to wash it all down – as long as you are 21 years of age, of course. Everyone who participates also receives a signature Bacon Chase T-shirt and the signature Bacon Chase scratch-n-sniff bib. Runners will be able to proudly display their love of bacon with these one of a kind rewards.
Blitz to Bacon Chase
For those more interested in the bacon rather than chasing at this celebration of all things bacon, there is also an event called the 0.05k Blitz to Bacon where participators will make their way across a stretch of only 164 feet to feast on an infinite amount of savory bacon strips. Although your hoofs may be tired after running this 5k of pure bacon bliss, participants will rejoice with delight at all of the bacon-themed activities that will await. Exalting all that is scrumptious and hammy, this bacon-themed festival is something you surely do not want to miss.
