Event description

Description

You do not need to bring a bed! Rolling beds are provided for you.

It is a sprint!

The length is a few hundred meters – so everyone can do it because you have four persons pushing the person on the bed!

The event starts at 3:30. Come by Gear West Run & Ski 3:00 to get your bed event organized

Location is in Long Lake which is 20 min west of Mpls and 5 min west of Wayzata. Coming from the east? Just exit off 394 at the Orono/Long Lake exit.

Each team will recieve a event t-shirt and prize. Join us for Summerfest after the race and a BBQ.

Join us! Saturday July 22nd Bring your family, your friends your dog and have fun by the lake!

Can't make the race but what to help out kids in the Twin Cities? Go to http://myveryownbed.org/donate/ to make your tax deductible donation. Just $100 buys a kid in the Twin Cities a new twin sized bed.
