The 5th Annual Supermarket Street Sweep! 12/4/2010

I was fortunate to be apart of "The Supermarket Street Sweep" last year.  Killer race through the bustling streets of SF with multiple check-points.  An unusual alley cat in that it requires racers to check in at various supermarkets spread out through San Francisco to purchase non-perishable food. The race is split into two divisions: speed or cargo. Racers for the speed race expect to spend anywhere from $15-30, and the cargo racers spend hundreds of dollars. It takes a financial commitment to contribute to this amazing event. Last year the event raised 7,507 lbs of food, which is over 6,000 meals! Great race for a great cause.
