Event description
They're back!! We've brought back the Bed Races to Durango. Compete in the most crazy/fun event of the year in Downtown Durango .

About this Event

The Bed Races are back! We're bringing back Durango's craziest and most fun event in what is sure to be an action-packed spectacle. Compete head-to-head against other teams for the Bed Race Trophy. The event will be held on Main Avenue before the start of the Snowdown Light Parade. This event is a fundraiser for the Durango 100 Club and all entry fees ($50 per team of 5) go directly to the 100 Club. Support a great cause and have one heck of a time. The race will start at 4:00pm on the 700 block of Main Ave on Friday, February 1st. The start/finish line will be in the middle of the block with races going off in both directions (north/south) in each lane. Teams of 5 (4 runners & 1 person on the bed) will race down and back with a "onesie" exchange in the middle. You'll race head-to-head against the team next to you. First team to cross the finish line advances to the next round. Beds are provided. You'll need a team of 5, a comic-con onesie, a team flag (that'll hook to the bed), helmets for everyone, and proper footwear. Prizes will be awarded to the top 2 teams.

Entry Fee: $50 (for team of 5, $10 per person)

Teams of 5: 4 people pushing the bed, one person on the bed. Person on the bed exchanges onesie with one of the runners at the turn around point.

Here's how this crazy fun event works:

Teams of 5: 4 people pushing, 1 person on the bed. Your team races against the bed in the lane next to you in a head-to-head race. You'll race down to the end of the block, the person on the bed will then exchange their onesie with one of the people pushing the bed. Your team will push the bed back to the start/finish line. First team to cross the finish line wins. So, in other words, it's an out and back race. It's short, it's fun, and it's goofy! You win your heat and you'll move on to the next round. There will be up to 24 teams competing. Have any questions about the race? Give us a call at (970)946-6726.
