Bed Racing is a costumed team event, consisting of four pushers and a rider, racing modified beds over distances varying from 100yds to 3 miles. An exciting, zany sometimes fast! spectator sport.

This crazy fast moving event, is said by some to be the most fun you can have outdoors in your pajamas.

An outdoor fun event, raced on smooth grass, running tracks or roads (subject to police permission).

An activity very popular with students, although there are no official age restrictions. Kidnapped Grannies in their beds are prohibited from being raced, unless prior permission is obtained.

To build a racing bed that is easily pushed and has the durability to complete the race, requires design, welding and mechanical skills, from the constructors. The pushers must be able to run. The rider must possess the ability to stay awake.

A standard bed and mattress is strengthened and fitted with suitable wheels. Pushers and riders are normally dressed in appropriate costume, and the teams are encouraged to be named suitably! and to display the name on the bed.

Typical Bed Racing rules: Overall Dimensions: Length -- Minimum - 6 ft. Maximum - 7 ft. Width -- Minimum - 3 ft. Maximum - 4 ft. Wheels: No more than 4 wheels per bed. Maximum wheel diameter 6 inches. Steering Mechanism: None allowed Mattress required: Decorations: encouraged. No Sharp of Dangerous Projections. No pushing handles. Beds considered dangerous by judges will be prohibited from racing. Special Beds; No bathtubs or waterbeds allowed.

This event is hilarious, the crashes, the costumes and the fast races. People in crazy costumes with purple hair flying, its quite a sight!
