B. Good Is Hosting a Combination 5K and Eating Challenge
B. Good is hosting what may be the unhealthiest 5K of all time.
The Burger Brigade Dine ‘n Dash combines eating challenges with running—and, quite possibly, nausea—in probably the only race where you’re likely to consume more calories than you burn. The event takes place on Saturday, March 19.
Here’s how it works: Participants start at the Summer Street B. Good, run .4 miles to the Washington Street location, and eat a side of fries once they arrive. Then, they run another 1.4 miles to the Boylston Street store and have a side of kale and quinoa. Next, they jog .5 miles to Massachusetts Avenue and put away a veggie or beef burger. Finally, they waddle the final .8 miles to Dartmouth Street and down a Ben & Jerry’s milkshake. If you don’t lose your lunch during this Herculean feat, you have our respect.
Why would you put your body through this mayhem? All proceeds benefit the B. Good Family Foundation, a non-profit that awards micro-grants to individuals looking to better their communities. Plus, every participant gets a voucher for a free meal from the restaurant, and the top male and female finishers win a $100 B. Good gift card, a Ben & Jerry’s ice cream cake, 12 Mighty Squirrel beers, and a Runkeeper GO subscription.
Beyond that, it’d be a great story to tell at parties.
$30, 3/19, 10:30 a.m. Starts at 84 Summer St., Boston, racemenu.com.
