Chiditarod 2009
The Chiditarod Urban Iditarod, a shopping cart race and mobile food drive, is an idea stolen from some folks in New York (who in turn stole it from some people in San Francisco). Every artist is a canibal; every poet is a thief.

Inspired in part by the Alaskan Iditarod dog sled race, an urban iditarod replaces dogs and sleds with shopping carts and costumed heroes.

2009 was the fourth annual running of the race in Chicago. The first year ran in sun, the next two in snow, and this year ran in the rain.
