BACON: Running for the Taste, and Charity

Finally there's a reason to go running ... bacon.

The 5K Piggy Pilgrimage Bacon Chase combines running and our favorite meat. The first one took place in Chicago this past weekend, with the next one in Minneapolis on July 19th, with more cities to come.

During the race runners will get unlimited bacon bits and at the finish line there will be unlimited bacon available for all as one free Bloody Mary for runners over 21. All the proceeds from signups will go to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

Runners that don't feel up for the 5K race can do the 50-meter “blitz to the bacon.”
