Teams of business associates or ad-hoc groups compete for the fastest time pushing their own designed bed over a race course. Teams may consist of up to four "pushers" and at least one rider (with a helmet on!). The race is along Lake Boulevard, St. Joseph, Michigan. Come early for the parade of competitors.
Two teams compete in each heat of a double elimination format. So every team is guaranteed two races! This format provides a perfect opportunity to challenge your competitors. So sign up your team and challenge your competition to a race!
$175 entry fee. Teams may supply their own bed or rent one from Rotary. Slumberland Furniture of Benton Harbor will supply the mattresses for all race beds.
