Please join us for the inaugural food drive and shopping cart race known as the Cotatitarod on Saturday, April 29th, 2017. This is an all ages event based on the CHIditarod.

Part pub crawl, part costume contest, part charitable event, and all fun. Teams of five will compete for prizes and glory by racing along the hexagonal route, hitting checkpoints along the way. Trivia questions will be asked! Stupid human tricks will be performed!

Get together a team of five people. Come up with a theme and make costumes that match your decorated shopping cart. Collect 60lbs of food to donate per team. Know where you can get your own shopping cart? Great. Please don’t steal them. You can beg them or borrow them, that’s fine. If you can’t find a shopping cart we will let you borrow one of ours (we are borrowing them from Oliver’s Market the day of the event. Thanks Olivers!) and you can decorate it the morning of the race.

There is a list of things that Redwood Empire Food Bank needs donated, please give them the things on this list. Hungry people of Sonoma County thank you!

Register your team! Fill out the nifty form to get you started. A detailed racer packet with much information can be yours. Click here to register now. Don’t want to race but still want to help out? Make a tax deductible donation here! or email northbay (at) burningman (dot) org and find out how you can volunteer the day of the event.

Show up the day of the race and check in! Bring your 60lbs of food per team as your entry fee! Run the race, run I say. Hush you muskies! Run! Collect your awards and glory at the Finish Line in La Plaza Park at the stage where you will be congratulated for a job well done. After-party will be at the Flagship Taproom off the park.

La Plaza Park has never been so fun! Be a part of the very first shopping cart race in downtown Cotati and earn your Cotatitarod bragging rights. It’s for a great cause, and it’s going to be a great day.
