Bed Race Teams consist of five members—four racers and one rider—and speed takes the ultimate checkered flag while top award of the day is for décor, engineering, crowd favorite and just plain funniest.
Teams race in 4 divisions (Men, Women, Co-Ed and Corporate). Some race for speed and some for show. All race for charity.
In 2015, we are empowering our runners with an opportunity to raise awareness, fundraise and race for the nonprofit of their choice! If you are going to work that hard in bed might as well be something you are passionate about.
“We changed our nonprofit mission for 2015, we are looking to provide funding and awareness to a group of nonprofits instead of only one. We encourage our racers to pick something that they are most passionate about and race their hearts out. We believe our teams will have a level of motivation that will far exceed our expectations this year.” – Co-Producer, Barbara Ferenczi
Top fundraiser gets a one-foot head start on their first heat to help speed them up so encourage your friends and family to give to your charity.
The Grand Marshal and Miami celebrities are on hand to handle the judging/scoring. Previous Grand Marshals have included Flo Rida, Helio Castroneves (3-time Indy 500 Champion and winner of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars”), Tony Kanaan (2004 IndyCar Champion) and Realty TV Star and entertainer, Vanilla Ice.
Intermissions with live music, hilarious performances and talented dancers entertain while racers ready for the finals. The fastest team in each of the four divisions wins, Women, Men, Co-Ed and Corporate (Over 30).
The 2015 Bed Race for YOUR CAUSE will be the best one yet!
