Description

Come Run For Bacon in Midway on Labor Day!

Join us for the 3rd Annual Ernie's Bacon Run 15K & 5K on Monday, September 2nd at 8:00am in Midway, KY.  In addition to our new 15K (9.3 miles) and 5K (3.1 miles) we will have a Little Bacon Kids 1K (0.62 miles) at 8:45am.  Our race is named for Ernie Peel, longtime local runner who has helped hundreds and hundreds of Central Kentuckians find their love of running.  Since Ernie also has a great love for bacon we'll have bacon for all finishers. 

Our 15K is the perfect prep race for runners preparing for fall 13.1s and 26.2s like KY History Half Marathon, Ironhorse Half Marathon, Gobbler Half Marathon, BG26.2 and Indy Monumental.
