The annual Accora Village Bed Race for the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa is one of the highlights of Winterlude. 50 teams of 4 runners and one rider compete with modified and decorated beds for honours and prizes as the fastest bed, the best decorated bed and the best fund raisers. Put your team together for the race on February 16, 2019. This will be the 39th running of the Bed Race, and the 17th organized by the Kiwanis Club of Ottawa.
For 2019 the event will be moving from Dows Lake to York Street near Dalhousie with a large number of other activities. This move is part of a number of changes being made by Heritage Canada.
This event is a lot of fun for participants, and the funds raised goes to support the Kiwanis Aktion Club and other Kiwanis Club of Ottawa's projects and the Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation. You can register your teams and pledges here.
