Idiotarod: Run Idiots Run

This sounds like an interesting activity. It made it to our alternative activities list MTV Labs. I just can't believe this is the THIRD ANNUAL and I've missed the first two completely.

Run Idiots Run
Time to steal your shoppin carts, the Idiotarod is coming!... "The Iditarod is the famous long-distance race in which yelping dogs tow a sled across Alaska. Our Idiotarod is pretty much the same thing, except that instead of dogs, it's people, instead of sleds, it's shopping carts, and instead of Alaska it's New York City"...




We love this crazy-ass, outlaw NYC event. The costumes are wild, the shopping carts are inventive, and the people are insane! (the carts are usually packed with beer.) And it's this weekend!... "The third annual event happens January 28, 2006. It will start in Brooklyn, run into Manhattan, and end approximately five miles later. Teams of five will race for a cash prize. And glory."
