Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Horses aren't the only things racing this week. 

In Louisville, people also race beds.

The 26th annual Kentucky Derby Festival Great Bed Races were Monday night at Broadbent Arena.

Five-person teams raced wheeled beds through a figure-eight course.

Four team members pushed the bed, while the fifth participant enjoyed the ride.

Beds were painted with different designs and represented several sponsors.

It was $130 to enter a team, and more than 40 teams participated.

Prizes were not only awarded to the fastest beds, but also for "Best Decorated Bed," "Most Entertaining," and "Cone Eater" categories.

KDF says 3,000 people attended the event.
