The Cinci-Cart-Ic Race
Last Updated on March 27, 2018
Five employees from US Digital Partners raced around Cincinnati and Newport this past weekend, each dressed as a character from the popular Candy Land board game. Are we lunatics? Not this time! Along with many other teams, we were taking part in the wacky Cinci-Cart-Ic Race, an annual event benefitting the Freestore Food Bank.

Based upon the Alaskan Iditarod, the Cinci-Cart-Ic Race had teams, each with their own theme and customized shopping carts, race around the area to select checkpoints. At every checkpoint, teams faced unique challenges, ranging from a song and dance contest, eating ice cream and chugging 2 liters of soda to trivia on Cincinnatis history.
After a grueling five miles, we made it to the finish line intact (our pride included!). We assume our accomplishment is on-par with the original Iditarod, but that might be up for debate.
