Essentially, the bed race entails getting a team together of 5 people that will push a carriage, upon which sits a twin mattress-sized bed, approximately 150 yards.
Teams can include minors so long as the guardians sign a release, which will be provided when finalized.
One person sits in the bed while the four others push the bed down a course. At the course midpoint, the person in the bed hops out, rings a bell, and returns to the bed. The racers then push the bed back to the starting line.
Each team races the clock on a single lane. The team may get two heats to generate their best time depending on the number of entries.
Another option is to “parade” a Team’s own bed down the course in the “float” category. No running is needed. You just decorate to the hilt and look to win on creativity.
