About This Activity



The Tastiest all-you-can eat Bacon 5K Run/Walk is coming to Atlanta! There will be fists full of bacon as well as other bacon flavored treats from our vendors! And it's only 3.1 miles, because you shouldn't have to work too hard for Bacon. You get an official The Bacon Run™ t-shirt and part of the proceeds go to rescuing children from human trafficking. So you get to EAT BACON, WEAR BACON, and GIVE BACON. It's a win-win! This race is chip timed. We'll have prizes for Best Bacon Costume! So get your Bacon On!!

Beyond Bacon...We have timing technology that will blow your mind! We not only have printable results (so you don't have to wait around to see if you placed) but when you go online to check your times you get your own personal page with all your data. THEN on your page is a video of you crossing the finish line...but not only that you get an awards certificate congratulating you on your achievement with your pace, rank, time etc. recorded too so that now you have that as a reminder to shoot for your next PR! But here is where it gets even better...ready? Ok, it will also be live stream! Why does this matter?? Because people who can't be there who you would love to be there can now watch you at home on YOUTUBE aaaand you have proof you were there and not telling a "Big Fish" story!! Yep! We wanted to capture this race so you can also remember what a fun time you had!
