2018 Urban Miditarod
August 4 | 10:30 am - 6:00 pm
- Heartside Park
- 301 Ionia Ave SW, Grand Rapids, MI 49503 United States
Trust us, it's nothing like that famous Alaskan dog race.
- We start and end at Heartside Park.
- 4-6 people per team, all must be 21+
- This is a 5k urban team race with a cart, bar crawl, costume contest, and an epic after-party all wrapped into one
- Shopping carts are provided by SpartanNash. You can decorate 1.5 hrs before the race starts at the beer tent.
- During the race, there will be 5 mandatory checkpoints (bars) with a 20-minute holding time at each checkpoint to rehydrate 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 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).
- Epic after-party to follow. Live music, beer tent, yard games...the works!
