Teams build themed beds on wheels, and then race (using manpower only) against other teams. Each team consists of five members to run the race - one rider and four runners to push the bed. Beds will race in heats, two at a time. When each race heat starts, the rider must put on their "pajamas" and get on the bed before the team races down Main St. The race course is a straight run on Main St. from Hampton St. to the finish at the Wells Fargo bank. Pre-registration is required. Entry fee is $150. Contact Family Promise for Early Bird and other discounts.
