The Bacon Strip Races were the creation of our late friend, Jane Welzel. Jane passed on Aug 31st, 2014 and while she can not be here physically to cheer us on, she will be there in spirit. She loved to compete but more importantly, she loved being with friends and she would have wanted this race to continue. We miss you Jane!
