CARTATHLON III – “A Mobile Eatery-Themed Scavenger Hunt and Urban Footrace”

Food Carts Portland is pleased to announce sponsorship of this event in conjuncture with our friends over at Willamette Week and the Portland Mobile Restaurant Group. From the WWeek website:

This mobile-eatery-themed combination of a scavenger hunt and urban footrace celebrates Portlanders’ love of food carts, defiance of winter weather, and affinity for oddball competition.

Working in teams, participants will decipher riddles, eat, ride Tri-Met, find Portlandian items, and take photos. The route will encompass Southeast, Southwest, Northeast and North Portland as contestants race between some of Portland’s most popular food carts, completing fun challenges and eating tasty food.

Participation fee for contestants is $55 for a five-person team, and will include breakfast snacks, complimentary beverages, free food along the route, and admission into an after party hosted by Willamette Week. 

Founding carts include: Big-Ass SandwichesFlavourSpotGrilled Cheese GrillKoi Fusion,  Potato Champion, and Whiffie’s Fried Pies
