Join the fun as teams of students push beds on wheels while decked out in creative costumes at the University's "longest running" tradition. Teams of five students may register to enter the races. General admission to this event is free and open to the campus and community.
The Bed Races began in 1980 to celebrate the opening of Maverick Stadium. Racing beds are provided. Teams compete against one another in timed heats. The top teams advance through finals to win; best time in each division wins.
This event is sponsored by EXCEL Campus Activities and Campus Recreation -- a program of the Division of Student Affairs.
