This is what you get when you combine one of the Best Beer Fests in the Southeast (Kingsport Oktoberfest) 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.
The Basketball 5k: No we’re not kidding. Dress as a player or a cheerleader and yes you have to dribble the ball. Springboard Slam Dunk Finish, Community Service, 1/4 mile ball steal, and Refs on Bikes. All you need now is some of Mom’s Apple Pie.
Add Golf – Carts + Running – Crying + 18 Holes + Beer at the Finish Line = Awesome
Tackle 18 holes with a partner while you sprint through the course. The lowest combined time and shot count is officially awesome. Date Coming Soon!
