Eat your way through the first-ever Munchathon, a food-themed fun run and obstacle course featuring local food and beverage vendors, which takes place at Oak Canyon Park, near Irvine Lake, on July 16. The event will have two major elements: the 5K run/walk with food/beverage stops and food-themed challenges, and a festival of dozens of gourmet food trucks.
You love food. You follow more gourmet food trucks than actual people on Twitter. Your eyes roll in the back of your head when you bite into a red velvet cupcake. You dash to your favorite restaurant despite your non-existent lunch break. You devour whatever might be in arms reach at that very moment. You are the ultimate foodie! So do you have what it takes to eat your way through an obstacle course and fun run? Well, we think you do. We designed this event just for you.
Inspired by the Travel Channel’s Man v. Food and CBS’ The Amazing Race, Munchathon, the first-ever food-themed fun run/obstacle course featuring food and beverage stops PLUS a gourmet food truck festival, launches at Oak Canyon Park in Orange County, CA, on Saturday, July 16, 2011.
Run, walk, skip and munch your way through the scenic course overlooking Irvine Lake. Besides encountering obstacles, you will have several stops where you can try sample-size food items from gourmet food trucks and local vendors. You can expect beverage stops along the course as well. Get a team together or go solo, dress up as bananas or hot dogs or piggies—whatever gets you pumped—and bring your appetite. After the run, participants will have access to a festival of gourmet food trucks, beverages, entertainment, vendors and lots more.
Don’t feel like working so hard for your food? You can skip the run and buy a ticket just for the food truck festival. Either way you’ll have a great time!
We only have TWO RULES for all attendees and those are…
DASH & DEVOUR.
Munchathon is open to all ages. The 5K fun run goes from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Early admission to the festival is from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. and general admission starts at 11 a.m. The event ends at 5 p.m.
