The annual event, sponsored by the Annandale Chamber of Commerce, is a fundraiser for Virginia Special Olympics. Teams representing local businesses, law enforcement agencies, and elected officials push hospital beds on John Marr Drive, with a sharp U-turn at the half-way point. Three teams race in each heat, and the winner moves on to the next round.
