    Branson's Great Bacon Race is an event combining America's favorite food (BACON) and our favorite form of athleticism (RUNNING)! All to sponsor MISSIONS. Aid stations and finish line will be stocked and full of delicious BACON! We offer a 5K and a 3 hour endurance run. All finishers will receive a unique bacon themed finisher medal and  BACON t-shirt. Basically BACON Be Everywhere! Professional Chip Timing will be provided by Cross Country Missions and awesome BACON themed shirts printed by CrossThreads. There is so much BACON it’s BACON Me Crazy!



    What is a Virtual Race? A virtual race is a race that can be run anywhere. Participants can run or walk the race distance wherever they want during the designated race period, even indoors on a treadmill.

    How does a virtual race work? Simply register for our race complete the distance any time and anywhere you desire (even on a treadmill!) by the race date.

    Who can participate? Anyone! Young or old, fast or slow – we encourage participants of all ability levels.

    Can I walk? Do I have to complete the entire distance all at once? We encourage you to run as much of it as you can, but walking is okay! Most participants complete their run all at once, but we understand that not everyone is able to complete a 5k in one outing. So set your goal – whatever that may be – and go out and accomplish it! If that means you need to break up your run into multiple segments, so be it.

    What if I can’t complete my run during the race period? It's okay, we understand that life happens. We still encourage you to complete the distance as soon as you can. We will mail medals to all registrants after the event date.

    How do I track my distance and time? The most accurate way to do this is by using a Running GPS watch, but there are also several free smartphone apps available for iPhones and Android phones that you can use.

    When will I receive my medal? We will ship all medals the 2 weeks following the race date.
