When does my race entry form and money need to be turned in?
What time is the event over?
What is the race format and how are the winners determined?
What about parking?As a spectator how do I watch the race?
What else will be going on besides the bed races?
I have a business (church, organization, etc…) and would like to sponsor a bed in the race or be a Bed Race sponsor.
I have a few friends at work (church, etc..) and we would like to participate but we are not sure we could actually build a bed to race. Do you have any extra beds that we could use?
Do you need brakes and steering for your bed?
How much time does it take to run the race heat?
What if my team just wants to have fun and not really have to compete with a super fast team?
A: The sooner the better. This will assure that your team members will receive the right size t-shirts and other goodies. It will definitely make for a faster check-in for you on Race Day.
Please turn in your completed registration packet, signed waiver, and registration fee by February 12, 2018. It can be mailed to P.O. Box 1141 Columbus, GA 31902. If you register after February 12, we can’t guarantee the entire team will get a t-shirt that fits!
With an early registration, you will receive all the race day instructions needed to make your race day go smooth and FUN. Your team can request a “pre-race day” inspection (within a 20-mile radius) to be certain or have questions about your bed construction.
A: It’s dependent on the number of beds entered. We believe the latest will be 1:30 PM. We ask each team to exercise good sportsmanship by staying for the award ceremony. There are several other awards/prizes, besides speed, that will be given out and are not announced until then.
A: Free and unlimited time parking areas:
TSYS outdoor parking lot.
The Downtown Elementary School parking lot is reserved ONLY for the beds and the vehicles used to haul the beds.
NO spectator/team member parking at the following:
14th Street from 1st Avenue to Broadway
TSYS parking garage
Country’s Barbecue paved lot — reserved for their dine-in customers
A: We will begin festivities at 11:00AM with live music from a local performer.
Spectators are encouraged to purchase tickets to vote for their favorite bed design or favorite team for $1 per vote.
A small concession stand and Country’s BBQ will be available.
