The Idiotarod is a charitable shopping cart race in which teams of five "idiots" group themselves with a modified grocery store shopping cart and run through the streets of Phoenix. The race features people in costumes and themed floats. The races are fun competitions where sabotage, costume, and presentation are rewarded.

The race will commence (that means start) at somewhere around 12:00pm. Or maybe 1:00. The starting location will be revealed too all registered participants a day prior to the race.

The entry fee is $50 per team, and we limit the race to 36 teams.

Check the registration page for more details


All teams are required to bring a pack of socks or underwear per team member (brand new in the package) for donation to EmpathyAZ Bring the sizes and gender the members of your race team would normally wear. So, each person on the team should stop and pickup a package of socks or underwear. Just buy the size and style that you would wear. We've also been told that they would rather not get g-string/thong type underwear. Sexy ladies and men are welcome to model those items for the judges though. There might even be an award on the line!

Proud winner of a New Times "BEST OF" award!
