The Bacon Beiner
Mar 19, 2016
If you have been hearing all the media fuss about processed meats lately, you are probably wondering if you should swear off this much-loved, fast-and-easy, breakfast and lunch food forever. But, the questions is – is it possible to replace it?
Well, we have planned a really fun way for you to have your bacon and eat it too!
The Bacon Beiner is our fun solution to the problem~ it’s an ultimate nordic ski endurance challenge for you – with bacon! Or a substitute for you vegetarians out there.
Skiers can select 2, 4 or 6 hours in which to complete as many laps as possible on a 5 km course.
Little piglets will have 30 minutes on a 500 m loop.
Where does the bacon come into the story? It’s easy! Each lap will only be registered after the participant downs a pre-determined portion of bacon or its substitute at the stadium feeding trough. So, the more laps you make, the more bacon you get.
Everyone’s welcome to join in the fun. See you on the course!
