The sport of Bed Racing has been embraced by communities across the nation, Greenfield, Indiana is now one of those communities, and it is becoming an annual event. Teams compete by pushing any object that resembles a bed. Some resemble “hospital style” beds – complete with a “patient”. Our competition will be “heat” type race down the street.
Competitors race in teams of four, plus one on the bed. Each team can provide their own bed, decorated in a theme and starting in 2019 a few beds will be provided, for a small donation, to allow those that are not mechanically inclined to join in on the fun. The bed runs on four wheels and can have no other propulsion than human. Colorful team uniforms and wildly creative beds bedecked with themed decorations are all part of the fun.
