What is this competition? (Read 410 times)

    I've been in two different cities this year where I have seen teams of  4-6 people, with each team dressed in a theme costume, running down the sidewalks either looking for something or trying to get somewhere by a certain time. They have a shopping cart with them that is all themed out with their costumes. Anyone know what this competition is?

      My brother has done something like this in Chicago, the Chiditerod.  I'm pretty sure it involves beer, otherwise he'd not bother. Tongue  This is from a few years back...my brother is Grover:

       

      At its core it's a food drive.  Looks like a really fun way to do some good.

        Looks like fun.

          He looks just like you.

          Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

            A few years ago a friend of mine went to some sort of daytime costume party dressed as Oscar the Grouch.  Later, he played in a soccer tournament and his team won, so the team picture appeared in a local newspaper.  Unfortunately, his green face paint did not come out green in the black-and-white newsprint.  Hilarity ensued.
