"This year we've added a fun twist," said AEB advisor Leslie Page. "We've added to the title of the event, now called "Take Back the Night Bacon Run." We will have bacon stations throughout the race where participants can win bacon prizes, added Page. "We want the 5K runners to run like there's bacon at the finish line; the winner of the 5K run will be crowned "The Baconator!"
