No, we are not talking about the Iditarod and its inspirational dog sled stories. The Idiotarod is considered a celebration of all things idiot. Beginning in 2004, hundreds of drunken idiots race from Brooklyn to Manhattan. This occurred again last Friday. From CBS:
Teams of five (four runners and one musher) per cart must make it to two checkpoints and the finish line with their cart. Inebriation is allowed, and even encouraged. The cart must be intact, and four rubber wheels must be used. Teams can choose any route they want to make it to the checkpoints.
Sabotage is not only allowed, but officially encouraged by a prize.
