The Portland Mobile Restaurant Group and Willamette Week, present “Fill
your mouth with Sunshine: PDX Cartathlon II”! This mobile-eatery-themed
combination of a scavenger hunt, eating competition and urban footrace
celebrates Portlanders’ love of food carts, defiance of winter weather,
and affinity for oddball
Working in teams, participants will decipher riddles, eat, ride Tri-Met, find Portlandian items, take photos and compete in an egg toss for tickets to Cirque du Soleil's production of OVO. 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 $50 for a five-person team, and
will include a commemorative shirt, free food along the route, and
admission into an afterparty hosted by Willamette Week.
Top team will win free food cart food for a year!
