If you’ve ever dreamed of joining Jack London on a wild, Alaskan adventure in which you’re driving a team of dogs across the tundra, well, dream on. Until then, there’s the Cinciditarod and a shopping cart full of verve. Cheer on as local teams (people, not dogs) drag grocery carts on a five-mile race course through Downtown and Over-the-Rhine.
