The Asheville Idiotarod (aka Race of Awesome) makes its triumphant return. The event borrows its names from the Alaskan dogsled race (the Iditarod), only instead of sleds, racers use shopping carts, and instead of dog teams, it's teams of fellow idiots — so called because they're costumed and tied to said carts. Which they then navigate through an obstacle course, performing crazy tasks and competing for prizes. Like the "I Piddy Da Fool" award. And the Chuck Norris Award. Registration is $175 per team or $35 per person. The race is Sunday, Nov. 18, 2 p.m. http://www.raceofawesome.org.
