About The Food Fight 5K
In a battle against both other runners and hunger itself, contestants in the Food Fight 5K don goggles and running shoes to sprint through a 5K course while dodging volleys of food—all to benefit local charity. At four food-themed stations along the way, volunteers deluge runners with different foods, including spaghetti, mashed potatoes, chocolate, and flour. To avoid waste, the "food" at each station is actually a mix of corn starch, water, and non-toxic coloring—aside from the spaghetti station, which uses expired pasta that is nevertheless safe and non-toxic. After the race, runners head through a human car wash to clean up before attending an after-party with drinks, live music, foam cannons, confetti, and food (for eating this time). Many events also include the ooblek challenge, in which challengers attempt to walk across a non-Newtonian substance that's at once a solid and a liquid, unlike Isaac Newton's body—an all-gaseous omniscient cloud.
