The 2016 BaconBeiner (Yes, Bacon!)

A race of porcine proportion! This cross country ski event celebrates all things bacon

We love hearing about new events and this one pretty much blew our socks off! When we recently published our list of Must-Do Winter Races (2016 Edition) we received an email from someone who was certain we’d missed this one – the BaconBeiner! Yes, with all the doom and gloom about bacon lately, we were totally stoked to find a race where this processed meat is celebrated!

The BaconBeiner cross country ski race will take place on March 19th at the Dawn Mountain Nordic Centre in Golden, BC. Unique race categories like “piglet”, “porker” and “potbelly” are just a few of the porcine treats at this event!

Oh, and if you’re wondering….yes, bacon is served at the finish line. You know, in case you actually needed another reason to sign up for this race!

What other winter races should be on our list?
