Portland Food Cartlandians take to the streets for Cartathlon V

Friday, January 1, 2010by  Mason Luvera

The WALLY team kicked off March by attending one of the quirkiest events of all, Cartathlon V! This mobile eatery-themed scavenger hunt takes place in Portland and never has a shortage of fun! Teams race around completing challenges, collecting items and tasting food, and while the food is delicious, our favorite part of the event is learning the eccentric team names and seeing the wacky costumes! The WALLY team narrowed it down to our top 5 for each category!

WALLY Team Top 5 team names:

1. Game of Scones
2. Jalapeño Business
3. 50 Shades of Grey Poupon
4. The Walking Bread
5. Raiders of the Lost Food Cart

WALLY Team Top 5 costumes:

1. Toast Busters – These hand-crafted costumes helped the Toast Busters capture their Toast Ghost

4. Bento Boxers – Each team member was a different type of Sushi, how creative!
