Bed Race

Loading Events

The Bed Race is an annual event with teams turning  beds into racing vehicles to raise support for Family Promise of Gwinnett County. The 2018 Bed Race will be Saturday, April 21, on the square in downtown Lawrenceville.

A new feature this year will be three areas staged as places where families without shelter might spend the night in Gwinnett County. See what it would be like to live in your car or stay in an extended stay hotel/motel. You can check it out while you’re waiting for your favorite team to race.

Events begin with a parade of beds at 10:30 a.m. Racing begins at 11 a.m. in youth, adult, and clergy categories. Teams race their bed for 228 yards, including two turns, beginning from the corner of Perry and Pike Streets. Awards will be presented during a closing ceremony at 12:30 p.m.
