Dozens Burned During First Annual Greek Sauce Run


Injuries marred the inaugural Greek Sauce Run in downtown Erie today, as scores of participants were burned by hot delicious Greek Sauce as they ran through Erie. The event was started to capitalize on the success of the Color Run, according to organizer Marv Ross. “Since people loved getting blasted with powder during the Color Run, I thought splashing Greek Sauce on them would be just as fun.”

The burns were mostly first degree, and didn’t keep most people from finishing the event. In fact, many participants enjoyed the run, none more than Kris MacColl, who ran dressed as a giant hot dog.

The run began at Perry Square and ended at the Anna Shelter, where dogs waiting to be adopted licked the participants clean.

Ross stated he plans on holding the event again next year, adding that next time, he won’t heat the sauce up as much.

    Another great post from Gooferie. Oddly enough, I would definitely participate in this run if it meant eating Greek Dogs at the end.
