Idiotarod NYC XVII

Idiotarod NYC is an annual event that puts a satirical, creative spin on that totally-unrelated annual event in Alaska.
Idiotarod NYC features costume-clad teams and their elaborately-themed shopping carts in a “race” through NYC that emphasizes showmanship over speed.

RSVP via facebook

Location t.b.a.



1. Each team must consist of one shopping cart and decorated team mates.

2. Each team can attach things to the cart, make a riding platform, grease the wheels and chop up the cart– but all pieces must be part of the final design.

3. Bribery Encouraged! Judges and Checkpoint Monitors enjoy all forms of bribery and favors and, yes, bribery will help garner prizes.

4.Good natured and ingenious sabotage is encouraged but nothing can be done of a malicious nature (like damaging the art of others carts) or that may hurt the existence of the race itself.

5. Do Not Litter! The hurling of food objects or other materials is strictly prohibited and will result in expulsion from the race. Don’t make a mess, we all share this planet.

6. Show some Respect: Please respect the police, the public, traffic and each other. This event’s continued existence is reliant on the cooperation of each participant… Inspired Idiocy = Yes, Douchey Stupidity = No.
