In Annandale, hospital beds are for racing

The 2012 Annandale Bed Race
Annandale’s wackiest event, the annual Bed Race, will take place tomorrow, 10 a.m.-noon,  rain or shine (that is unless there is torrential rain and lightening).

About a dozen five-person teams will race hospital beds along a stretch of John Marr Drive in front of Kmart. The teams represent local businesses—such as Pro Maxx and Silverado’s—and agencies like the police and fire departments. Government officials will hand out awards to the fastest team and best-decorated bed. The public is invited to come and cheer on the bed-racers in this fun community event.

The hospital bed race, sponsored by the Annandale Chamber of Commerce, raises funds for the Virginia Special Olympics and community projects.
