Not about eating, but it involves shopping carts
This sounds like a great Foodie Report activity.
I love all the events going on at Fountain Square this winter. Ice skating, broomball, now the Iditarod!!!
Fountain Square Management Group is going to have an Iditarod shopping cart race that runs from downtown, to Over-the-Rhine, Newport and Covington. Five-person teams will be picking up items on a grocery list and stopping at three mandatory checkpoints.
Grocery items will benefit Cincinnati’s FreestoreFoodbank, and a challenge awaits team members at each checkpoint. Challenges include performing for judges and consuming food and drink. Course details and grocery lists will not be revealed until the day of the race. The Cinciditarod begins at 12:30 p.m. and must be completed by 3 p.m.The first team to cross the finish line, having successfully completed all the requirements of the race, will be declared winner of the Cinciditarod and win a cash prize. Additional prizes are awarded for best costume & cart, best performance, best glamour shot, and more.
Registration runs from Jan. 21 to Feb. 21.
It costs $25, and it sounds like it's just crazy enough for me! Who's in?
