The Great Canadian Bacon Chase 2018

Published September 06, 2018 21:17


This 5km Scurry or a .05km Saunter is going to be so much fun and net proceeds from our event will support the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs. The starting pen will be located at the Parkinson Recreation and the herd of runners will be released in a 5km hustle down the Rails for Trails path. There will be three BC Bacon stations along the way to keep you on track and at the top of your game.

The 0.05km saunter is the ultimate fast track to pig heaven. Walk 164 feet from the parking lot to the Pig Pen and enjoy the same bacon ecstasy as the 5km runners.

At the end of the run enjoy a pancake breakfast, more bacon, a bouncy castle for the kids, tasty cocktails and surprise guests.Bacon
