Bacon Burner 6k (Cancelled Until 2021)

Bacon Burner 6k Cancelled Until 2021

Due to current public health orders and conditions, the Town of Frisco has made the decision to cancel the 2020 Colorado BBQ Challenge, which in April had been postponed from June 19-20 to September 25-26, 2020. The Town of Frisco had hoped that this event could be held in September to honor this 27-year-old tradition and support ongoing economic recovery. Current health orders allow for outdoor events with a maximum of 175 participants, and the next phase of public health orders moves that maximum attendance to 500 attendees. Even if the next level of public health orders was reached by September, it is clear that there is no realistic way to significantly reduce the draw of this event in order to respect and protect the public’s health during a street event, which typically draws 12,000-14,000 attendees over two days. The Bacon Burner 6k race is cancelled until 2021 as it is a part of the Colorado BBQ Challenge tradition.

The Colorado BBQ Challenge will be back on June 18-19, 2021 with the Bacon Burner 6k taking place on June 19. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Linsey Joyce.
