Each Bed Race team consists of five people – four pushing the bed, and one riding on it. Teams will compete against the clock, two teams at a time, on a 100-yard course. There are seven divisions: Fraternity, Sorority, Independent Male, Independent Female, Residence Halls Male, Residence Halls Female, Faculty/Staff/Alumni.

Entry fee is $25 for the first team, and $20 for each additional team.Plaques are given to the first place team in each division.  A trophy is also given to the team with the best costume and overall winner. 

Bed Race Rules:

  • A five-second penalty will be charged to a team’s time if its bed goes out of the boundaries designated for the race. 
  • Each team will be paired with another team to compete in the heats. The division will alternate turns. (Competition will be against the clock.)
  • The teams with the fastest times in each division will advance to the final competition and race again for the overall title. 
  • Teams should stay after they race to find out if they race for the overall title. The best times in each division will race again to determine the overall winner.
