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?
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: Please turn in your completed registration packet, signed waiver, and registration fee by February 15, 2019. It can be mailed to P.O. Box 1141 Columbus, GA 31902. If you register after February 15, we can’t guarantee the entire team will get a t-shirt that fits. You can also complete your entry using the Online Registration, it will allow you to pay online as well. 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 of your bed (within a 20-mile radius) to be certain about your bed construction.
A It depends 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:
