Munchathon: A 5K Food Truck Food Marathon

A lot of people think a food marathon actually involves running. Only once have I actually run from restaurant to restaurant. I hate running. For those of you who do enjoy it, I’d like to introduce you to Munchathon. It’s a 5K food-themed fun run/obstacle course, featuring food and beverage stops, as well as a festival of 30+ gourmet food trucks.
