This is what you get when you combine one of the Best Beer Festivals in the Southeast (Kingsport Oktoberfest – as if you didn’t already know that) with some shopping carts and a bunch of Awesome (you). The Tennessee Idiotarod is a shopping cart race in which teams of five push (sometimes modified) grocery store shopping cart and run through the streets of Kingsport for a 5k. Participants with themed carts and costumes will tackle obstacles and take on challenges in pursuit of beer and the ultimate glory – The Chuck Norris Award. This is additionally awesome because it is a food drive for local organizations.
But IT IS SOOO MUCH MORE THAN THAT! TENNESSEE’s Idiotarod is unique in that is also a Food Drive, involves community service projects, AND 20% of the proceeds go to winning teams’ choice of Non-Profit! It’s literally the most fun you’ll ever have giving back!
