- $20 for one ticket to the 5K Bacon Chase on March 22 ($45 value)
- $15 for one ticket to the 0.05K Bacon Chase on March 22 ($25 value)
The traditional Piggy Pilgrimage 5K starts at 10 a.m. Runners will be released in one large pack from the starting pen. The 0.05K Blitz to Bacon, a 164-foot sprint, starts at 11 a.m. During both races, runners can munch on unlimited bacon bits before feasting on unlimited amounts of bacon at the end of the race.
In addition to the sense of perseverance and accomplishment that comes with finishing a 5K, the organizers of the Bacon Chase have added another incentive: bacon. During their two races—the 5K Piggy Pilgrimage, which is a traditional 5K, and the 0.05K Blitz to Bacon, which is a 164-foot sprint—runners can munch on unlimited bacon bits before feasting on unlimited amounts of bacon at the finish line. Runners 21 and older can wash down the savory strips of bacon with a bloody mary, and all runners get a Bacon Chase T-shirt and a signature bacon-scented bib. The festival opens at 8 a.m. and features many bacon-themed activities, plus music.
The festive day serves a greater purpose, too. Attendees will be able to register to become a St. Jude Hero, raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, or both.
