Bacon Burner 5k at Copper Mountain

Copper Mountain Bacon Burner 5k

On January 12, 2023, Copper Mountain announced that it will host the Colorado BBQ Challenge in 2023, taking place June 15-17, 2023. The festival will be relocating from its home of 27 years on Main Street Frisco, to Copper Mountain Resort, located just 7 miles west on I-70. The Colorado BBQ Challenge is Colorado’s longest running barbeque competition and will continue to be sanctioned by the Kansas City BBQ Society. For 2023, attendees can expect a similar event to years past, with BBQ, music, community, and of course the Bacon Burner 5k.
