Register Now!

Bed Races are an exciting part of the Fall Festival at Penn State New Kensington. Last year, students came out, many in costume, to race beds and enjoy a sunny fall day with their friends. We encourage you to gather a team and come race with us!

This year all proceeds will benefit the Four Diamonds Fund at Hershey Medical Center.  Our student THON team raises money and awareness all year to support those children battling pediatric cancer!  Bed race teams consist of five members (four runners and one rider) who navigate a bed through an outlined course.  Throughout the course are various taks that need to be completed before making a mad dash to the finish! Prizes will be given the the following 1st place, 2nd place and Most Spirited.

Registration is  $25.00 per team. Complete a registration packet and submit it back to the campus no later than Wednesday, September 14.  If you choose not to race, you may still help support the Bed Races through a Bed Race sponsorship.

We look forward to seeing you on race day!
