Will Run for Bacon – Join Me in Chicago June 7th #BaconChase

06/02/2014 - 40 comments
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Bacon Chase. All opinions are 100% mine.

It’s no secret that I am a big fan of fitness and that my activity of choice is running.

It’s also no secret that I am a big fan of bacon.

Many people think that these two things contradict themselves, and that bacon and fitness cannot co-exist peacefully in a person’s life.

But they are wrong, you can live a fit lifestyle while eating bacon.

Well, maybe not at the same time.

Or, maybe you can!

With the Bacon Chase 5K and 0.05K you can have your bacon and run at the same time!

An unlimited amount of bacon.


How fun does this sound?

Can you imagine being rewarded for your race efforts with unlimited bacon and a Bloody Mary?

With the Bacon Chase you can!

About Bacon Chase


Before the event there is a bacon festival to celebrate all things hammy. The 5k run is 3.1 miles of “bacon bliss” in which runners are released as a pack from the starting pen. Runners will run hog wild enjoying unlimited bacon bits along the course and will be rewarded at the finish line with unlimited bacon glory. Those who choose to run the 0.05k run will experience the most delicious 164 feet of their lives.

Join Me in Chicago June 7th

On Saturday, June 7th I will be enjoying pure bacon ecstasy with my son as we run the 5K Chicago Bacon Chase!

When I told him what we were doing, he had the biggest grin on his face and said, “all-you-can-eat bacon, really?” We are both really excited to attend.

Despite my passion for running, I have actually never ran a 5K before. There has never been one worthy of of my time until now!

If you are local, you should join my son and I, we would love to have you race with us on our way to unlimited bacon victory.

Let me know in the comments if you register so we can arrange to meet each other at the starting line!

      The bacon was good! i was skeptical because that quantity of bacon was sitting out waiting for us, but we enjoyed it!

    Haha, that’s awesome! I don’t like bacon or running but I do love Chicago, I wish I was there! I hope you have an absolute blast.

      I have nothing to say. I am speechless to read “I don’t like running or bacon” LOL

    What a fun event! Can’t wait to hear how you guys do!

    I’d do anything for bacon. Wonder if we have a run like this in Oregon. Off to go check. Have fun getting that bacon.

    What a great idea to pair up bacon with a race! Although I’m kinda iffy on the whole bacon in the bloody mary thing! ;-)

  • Reply valmg @ From Val's Kitchen 06/04/2014 at 8:34 pm

    Sounds like a fun run! I wonder how many people are doing the .05k run (the one I’d do)! Ans I wonder if they’ll leave you any bacon!

  • Reply Valerie Remy-Milora 06/04/2014 at 8:02 pm

    That sounds like such a fun race! I’m a fitness fanatic and lover of bacon too so I’m happy to see the two brought together in such a fun way. Wish I were closer so I could join you :-(

    • Reply Kimberly Grabinski 06/05/2014 at 8:36 am

      Oh that would be so cool! They may be having one by you though, they have a bunch more coming up.

  • Reply Lynsey @MoscatoMom 06/04/2014 at 5:18 pm

    Bahaha this sounds AWESOME. I wonder how many pounds of bacon they are going to go through….

  • Reply Kathleen 06/04/2014 at 5:05 pm

    Ok. This is one race I can get behind! Love me some bacon.

  • Reply Tiff @ Babes and Kids 06/04/2014 at 4:37 pm

    This is a really fun idea. I personally couldn’t do bacon after a race, I can’t do heavy stuff it just makes me sick, but I’m sure that bacon will draw the crowds in. :)

    • Reply Kimberly Grabinski 06/05/2014 at 8:36 am

      I’ve never actually a done a race, so I guess I will find out. It’s only a 5k (or the .05k LOL) so it may be easier.

  • Reply Lisa @ Crazy Adventures in Parenting 06/04/2014 at 4:25 pm

    I really need a “Will Run for Bacon” t-shirt. For really realz.

    • Reply Kimberly Grabinski 06/05/2014 at 8:35 am

      oooh maybe the shirts they give out at the end will say “I ran for bacon” HAHAHA

  • Reply Sheila 06/04/2014 at 3:59 pm

    This is a great way to get my hubby to run. LOL! I love bacon, and will run for it any day :)

  • Reply Liz Mays 06/04/2014 at 2:58 pm

    Oh heck yeah, I’d run for bacon. There’s not much greater reward!

    • Reply Kimberly Grabinski 06/05/2014 at 8:34 am

      The only thing better would be unlimited bacon AND unlimited wine HAH

  • Reply Krissy 06/04/2014 at 11:47 am

    HaHa, I love it! This is probably the ONE AND ONLY race I could get my husband to do with me, lol.

    • Reply Kimberly Grabinski 06/05/2014 at 8:33 am

      Me too! I’d probably have to pull him in a wagon, but he would sign up for sure LOL

  • Reply Tammy Litke (@threedifferent) 06/04/2014 at 10:58 am

    This is the first 5K that I would ever consider ‘training’ for. Now do you train by running, or by eating bacon? hmmm…. ;)

  • Reply Raijean 06/04/2014 at 9:45 am

    Now this is a cause, I can get behind. I will run for bacon.

  • Reply Sara P. (@SensiblySara) 06/04/2014 at 9:38 am

    If the Bacon Chase were in San Antonio, I would be ALL IN!!

    • Reply Kimberly Grabinski 06/05/2014 at 8:32 am

      Did you check the upcoming races? They are having them all over!

      • Reply Sara P. (@SensiblySara) 06/05/2014 at 10:07 am

        Yep! The closest is Austin (1.5-2 hours north). I signed up for the notification email as there is no date set yet.

  • Reply Tiffany @ DontWastetheCrumbs 06/02/2014 at 4:08 pm

    This is TOTALLY cool. They’ve got San Francisco down for “coming soon.” It’s a bit over an hour away, but totally worth it for all you can eat bacon. :)

    • Reply Kimberly Grabinski 06/03/2014 at 12:23 pm

      I’m driving over an hour to get to the Chicago one. bacon is so worth it.

  • Reply Robin (Masshole Mommy) 06/02/2014 at 12:38 pm

    That sounds like an awesome reason to run LOL. Wish I lived in Chicago.
