The kickoff of every single Phoenix Idiotarod
race over the last six years can easily be summed up in a single word: Chaotic. Picture a hot mess of around 40 different five-person costumed teams launching into a mad dash en masse while pushing flamboyantly decorated shopping carts and flinging colorful gobs of goo at their competitors. Sounds kinda crazy, no?
While this same familiar scene of messy and madcap behavior will likely unfold yet again when the 2013 edition of the Idiotarod commences on Saturday afternoon, organizers claim that the rest of the race will incorporate some unfamiliar and completely new elements, however.
