March 6: Chicago’s 5th Annual Shopping Cart Race


For information, click here:

Fifth Annual Chiditatod, Saturday March 6, 12:30 p.m.

The Chiditarod, according to its organizers (and we have no reason not to believe them), is the world’s largest shopping cart race. The Chiditarod got its inspiration from the Iditarod. But, instead of sleds, the Chiditarod is a race of shopping carts. Instead of being propelled by dogs, the carts are propelled by people. Instead of Alaska, Chicago.

The race is also a charity event — a food drive. Each cart must finish the finish line with 40 or more pounds of food. The food is distributed to Chicago’s disadvantaged.
