It was only a matter of time before food truck mania coalesced with “Amazing Race” fervor. Enter the first-ever Munchathon, a food-themed 5k run/walk and obstacle course featuring local food trucks. Taking place on Saturday, July 16 at Oak Canyon Park overlooking Irvine Lake, the event is where you can literally eat and run.
And if you don’t like to work for food, don’t worry–there’s a full-on festival featuring live entertainment and dozens of gourmet food trucks (everyone from the Grilled Cheese Truck and Ahn Joo to White Rabbit and Tropical Shave Ice) that you don’t have to jump over hoops to get to.
Saturday, July 16, 11am-5pm @ Oak Canyon Park, 5305 Santiago Canyon Road, Silverado, California 92676. Tickets $12, Early Admission tickets (10am entry) $22. Children ages 6 and under free. Pre-registration required for walk/run. Registration $49 for single runners and $189 for teams.
