Racers will start in Battery Park and race to the Church Street Marketplace, where they will stop in front of Ben & Jerry’s and City Sports to eat their pint of ice cream. The racers will then head through North Burlington and back to Battery Park for the finish.
There are three different categories: Competitor, Fun Runner, and Supporter. Competitors must eat the entire pint during the race. Fun Runners may eat part of the pint, give it away to a friend, or have it afterwards. Supporters don’t run the race, but they receive a t-shirt. There will be prizes for top finishers and best dressed. There is also a team competition.
The race starts at 10am and registration/
