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. Family Fare Fast Lane will be providing the shopping carts for us the morning of the event, so during our check in period you can pick up your cart and start decorating before the race begins. 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 Downtown GR at Heartside Park's Beer Tent.
  • This is a 5k urban team race with a cart, bar crawl, costume contest, and an epic after party 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 clues just moments before the race begins (like a scavenger hunt)
  • 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 piece.
  •  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).
  • Party in the Park, epic after-party with a beer tent, yard games, live music...the works!
