What is Urban Miditarod?

It's nothing like the famous Alaskan race with dogs, sleds, and whatnot.  Oh no, this is here involves a super social team (you and your friends),  a shopping cart, and costumes. Cool, right?  This team event-challenge includes an urban team race, checkpoint challenges, a costume contest, bar crawl, and an epic after party, making it a full day of unforgettable fun! If you are adventurous enough to bark at strangers on the streets of GR and participate in this one-of-a-kind event, you will love this.  

I'm Pumped, What's Next?

Awesome!  Now, gather your friends and create your team of 4-6 racers and get registered. Once you've registered, start brainstorming your team name and theme (your captain can change/update this anytime, so don't let that hinder you from signing up early.  You'll also need to plan out how you'll deck out your costumes and shopping cart.  Hey, we'd love to see pics of your cart's transformation so feel free to post them on our FB page!

Stuff to Know

  • We start and end at Heartside Park.  
  • This is a 5k urban team race with a cart, bar crawl, costume contest, and an epic afterparty all wrapped into one
  • During the race, there will be 5 mandatory checkpoints (bars) with a 20-minute holding time at each checkpoint to rehidrate your 'doggies'
  • The 5 checkpoints are a mystery.  We'll disclose this info just moments before the race begins
  • Choose your own race path.  This is urban, remember?.  Just follow pedestrian traffic laws, hit your checkpoints in any order, and make it back in one peice.
  •  Minute-To-Win-It challenges will be at every checkpoint to help pass the time.  You'll have a chance to win prizes and/or reduce holding times at checkpoints, so bring your A-game!
  • We will recognize winners with prizes for the following:  1st place, Dead Effin' Last, and Best Theme (costumes and cart).
  • Epic afterparty to follow.  DJ music, beer garden, yard games...the works!

What You Need:

  • A team of 4-6 friends  (racers must be 21+ years)
  • A decorated shopping cart matching your team theme/costumes
  • Valid ID and cash for racing fuel (drinks)
  • Your party socks

Shopping Cart

  • We got somebody to provide us with shopping carts.  After registering, simply bring your paid invoice to the place and checkout a shopping cart.  At the end of the race and after pictures, you're team will return the cart back to it's original condition and we will take it off your hands.  It's the closest you'll get to white-glove delivery.  Oh, what's that?  You wanna make your own cart?  Sure thing, just make sure it abides by our rules (4 wheels, no engine...etc.).
