The Portland Mobile Restaurant Group and Willamette Week, present  "Cartathlon III”! 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 have 3 1/2 hours to 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. 

Top team will win free food cart food for a year!  Win prizes for best dressed team, best team name and more!
