Bacon Burner 6k
Due to ongoing public health orders and conditions, the Town of Frisco has made the decision to cancel the 2021 Colorado BBQ Challenge, originally scheduled for June 17-19. After postponing and then canceling the event in 2020 due the pandemic, the Town of Frisco had hoped that this event could be held in 2021 to honor what is now a 28-year-old tradition. Current public 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 250 attendees. While case data is improving and vaccination rates are rising, it has become clear that there is no realistic way to drastically reduce BBQ event attendance in order to respect and protect the public’s health during this popular event, which typically draws 12,000-14,000 attendees over two days.
The Bacon Burner 6k race is cancelled as it is a part of the Colorado BBQ Challenge tradition.
The Bacon Burner 6k is a 3.8 mile out-and-back run that will take place on a paved recreational trail. All racers will receive a commemorative Bacon Burner item. All registrants 21 and older will also receive a free beer ticket to redeem at the Colorado BBQ Challenge. Strollers are welcome; please leave your pet at home. This race is open to all ages and abilities.
