2018 Twin Cities Smoosh Racing Championship

Northstar Running is excited to present the 2018 Twin Cities Smoosh Championship. For the second year in a row, we are thrilled to partner with Bauhaus Brew Labs as the official race host and refreshment center before, during, and after the smoosh races. New this year, Northstar Running has also partnered with Children’s Minnesota to make this a charitable event. One hundred percent of proceeds from race registrations will be donated to Children’s and Bauhaus will donate a $1 for every beer sold during the event. Who doesn’t want to smoosh race for a good cause!!!

Smoosh racing consists of teams of four people, all wearing a pair of shoes attached to a set of two 2x4s. In head to head showdowns teams race approximately 50 yards down a straight course, turn around a pylon, and race back to the start. The goal is to work together as a team to complete the course as quickly as possible. Anything can happen in these races, with excitement right up until the finish! Talk about a great winter team building activity!

The winning team will receive the 2018 Smoosh Award, and more importantly, bragging rights for the year! After the races, we’ll be hosting a drawing for door prizes for both racers and fans. Round up your friends, co-workers, teammates, or family and join us for a fun morning of smooshing and socializing.
