ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - The downtown St. Louis Idiotarod has started.

This event is similar to the Alaskan event where dogs pull sleds across the Iditarod Trail, only it's people pulling a shopping cart.

Teams of five raced around downtown to checkpoints. At each checkpoint the teams must perform a challenge.

Themes for teams are encouraged, and prizes are awarded.

The Idiotarod will continue Saturday, with registration beginning at 10:30 a.m., the "Parade of Idiots" at 11:30 a.m., the "Scramble Start" at 12 p.m., and an after party at 2 p.m. at Rosalita's Cantina.
