Great American Bacon 5K medals
A medal and after-party awaited finishers of the Great American Bacon Race.

Runners and bacon lovers joined forces recently to deliver the most delicious 5K races around. The Great American Bacon Race was held Aug. 1 in Orlando, Sept. 19 in Miami and Oct. 3 in Tampa.

Each of the races featured three bacon stations along the course. Participants received a custom finisher’s medal, a Great American Bacon Race T-shirt, free bacon during the race and the Bacon Bash After-Party.

The race website promised, “Tons of like-minded people having fun and enjoying a fun bacon-filled day.”

Dates and locations have not been determined yet, but there are plans for an encore of the Great American Bacon Race for 2016.
