Boston Urban Iditarod

Where: Boston, Massachusetts

The urban take on Alaska’s famed Iditarod replaces sled dogs with people, snow gear with wacky costumes and sleds with shopping carts. It’s no 1,000-mile epic, but there’s definitely a challenge to finding the five checkpoint bars, participating in secret challenges (which, in the past, have included pole dancing and bowling), chugging beers and running in the cold of a New England March day, all the while filling your cart with non-perishable goods for a food drive.
