Additional Information

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!
