This past Sunday it was time again for the annual Bed Race at Zwartkops raceway. The event, the brainchild of the Round Table in Midrand, was first held in 1995 and has since managed to raise over 2 million Rand and donate more than 650 beds to institutes in need.
The event has turned into a real fun in the sun day drawing young and old to the race track.
But then there is also the very serious business of building a race-winning bed and selecting an olympic team with stamina beyond believe. Of course, if you lack engineering skills and a team of athletes, you could always resort to full-on warfare designed to break down the other team's morale and very possibly their well constructed racing vehicle..!
In the end though, it all boiled down do determination, teamwork and having fun!
Be sure to go check out the bed race next year- maybe even enter a bed into the race. It is garanteed to be great fun!
