Downtown Derby Bed Race 2018

Nashville’s Downtown Derby Bed Race is a competition where teams build and decorate their own “beds” to race up 5th Avenue to Bridgestone Plaza all in support of cancer research.

EVENT INFORMATION:
Team Check-in is at 8am at Bridgestone Plaza.
Parade of Beds at 9:30am.
Races start at 10am.

The winning team will be presented with the Winners’ Cup at a post-race ceremony at Bridgestone Plaza. Teams that demonstrate “Best Decorated” and the “Best in Spirit” will also be crowned.

For each $1k raised, teams will earn one head starts on race day. Prize packages for the top fundraising team will be awarded.

Fundraising for head starts will close at 5pm on Friday, May 4. Donations received after this time are appreciated but will not count towards a team’s head starts on race day.

Register your team and bed today!
