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:
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.
