NYC Idiotarod 2012
Zuccotti Park, Manhattan (subject to change)
Free to watch, registration for participants is closed

The Iditarod is the famous long-distance race in which yelping dogs tow a sled across Alaska. The 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. Teams of five will race for cash prizes and glory.
