Nashville’s Downtown Derby Bed Race is a competition where teams build and decorate their own “beds” to race in support of cancer research.

Team Check-in at 8am at Bridgestone Plaza.
Parade of Beds at 9:15am.
Races start at 10am. 

The winning team will be presented with the Winners' Cup at a post-race ceremony at Bridgestone Plaza. Teams that demonstrate “Best Decorated” and the “Best in Spirit” will also be crowned.

Teams that raise the most money can earn “head starts” on race day. Prize packages for the top fundraising team includes gift cards from Jim 'N Nicks, Dunkin' Donuts, Margaritaville, Tin Roof, Two Bits, and Vida Flo.

The prize package for the top individual fundraiser includes gift cards from Dunkin' Donuts, Commerce Street Bar & Grill at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel, Sprinkles Cupcakes, Dick's Last Resort, The Blowout Co., The Southern, Whiskey Rhythm Saloon, The Escape Game, Mafiaoza's, Sun Diner, Tequila Cowboy, Bar Taco, Josephine's, Vineyard Vines, Hattie B's, and the Treehouse. 

Fundraising for "head starts" will close at 6pm on Friday, May 5. Donations received after this time are appreciated but will not count towards a team's "head starts" on race day.
