What is the VIP Bed Race?

Every year, VIP brings local organizations including schools, businesses, and churches together in its largest fundraising event of the year: the Bed Race. Teams of five (one rider and four runners) design, create and build beds on wheels to race–using manpower only–in a competition for awards and prizes. Teams also compete against one another to raise the most money for VIP and to win the Merit Award.

The annual VIP Bed Race takes place on the last Saturday in February at the intersection of 14th Street and Broadway (next to Country’s BBQ on Broad). The racecourse is a straight run along 14th Street from 1st Avenue to Broadway and is approximately 150 yards long.

For more information on the rules and regulations, check out the sidebar to the right, or call the VIP office at (706) 494-6348.
