The race consists of teams of 10 people, which include eight pushers and two bed riders, who race down a city block, stopping twice to change sheets, and according to event spokesperson and racer Tracie Ransom, a quick sheet change can get you the win.
She says, You can cut seconds off by changing the sheets in a certain way. Contenders who arent winning have copied us to win, but its okay because we copied off another team.
Competing teams race down the 620-foot track in elaborate themed costumes, and sometimes it can leave them running for the covers.
Says Ransom: Most of the time were running through snow and slush, so it can be a dangerous adventure. The local hospital sponsors the event, so if anything happens, were taken care of.
