Events: Cinciditarod

By Steve Carter-Novotni · March 2nd, 2010 · CityBeat Recommends

If you’ve ever dreamed of joining Jack London on a wild, Alaskan adventure in which you’re driving a team of dogs across the tundra, well, dream on. Until then, there’s the Cinciditarod and a shopping cart full of verve. Cheer on as local teams (people, not dogs) drag grocery carts on a five-mile race course through Downtown and Over-the-Rhine.

The carts are decorated like floats by each team and the runners are festooned in all manner of bizarre regalia. Teams must stop at five checkpoints to fill a grocery list before reaching the finish line. Proceeds benefit the FreestoreFoodbank. Free. Noon Saturday.
