I like to run and I love to eat, so this race totally makes sense to me. Munchathon is a food-themed 5k and obstacle course. The sample-sized food that you'll encounter on the course is from gourmet food trucks and local vendors. One of the featured food items is cupcakes from Meringue Bake Shop.
After the 5k, there is a festival of gourmet food trucks, beverages, and entertainment. So far there are 20 food trucks confirmed, including the Go Country 105 Chuck Wagon featuring B Sweet Catering cupcakes, Short Stop BBQ featuring Cupcake Blake cupcakes, the Bakery Truck and lots of food trucks I've been dying to try, like the Grilled Cheese Truck.
The event takes place in July 16 at Santiago Oak Park, next to Irvine Lake. Registration for the 5k includes admission to the festival ($49), but you can buy festival admission separate ($12) if you prefer not to burn calories before. I'll be there wobbling through the run course and stuffing my face after. I hope to see you there too!
