Heritage Days Bed Race to take place

Posted: Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Heritage Days will once again feature a Bed Race on Saturday, June 22 during the Balloon Launch and Glow. The Bed Race will take place in front of Huntington North High School beginning at 6 p.m. Participants will need to sign in by 5:30 p.m.

All ages may take part in the event but due to the fast-paced nature it is recommended that children under the age of 15 be accompanied by a parent or older sibling who will play a part in the race and be on the same team. Participants are required to wear good running shoes. Flip-flops, sandals or bare feet will not be allowed. All participants must also sign a waiver relinquishing the Huntington County Chamber of Commerce and the city of Huntington of all responsibility.

Prizes will be awarded to the first three winning places: first place, $100; second place, $95 and third place $25. Dan Juergens, Juergens Do-It-Best and Heritage Days steering committee member is the organizer of the Bed Race. The entry deadline is Friday, June 14, 2013. Entry forms are available at the Huntington County Chamber of Commerce office, 305 Warren Street, or online at
