Cardboard Box Sled Race

March 16 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Challenge your co-workers to race a sled against other companies for a great cause. Friends and neighbors can join in on the fun with the family division. This year we are adding a costume tubing contest! Race the tubing runs in your best costume for prizes.

The race start time is noon, and this year proceeds benefit The John J. Nerden RTC Camp.

The John J.Nerden RTC Camp serves the community and the special people within it. Supported solely by private funding from local businesses, civic organizations, clubs and individuals, dedicated staff make this camp an invaluable resource every summer for children and adults with special needs.

Contest Rules

  1. Design & Build a sled of any size using ONLY cardboard, duct tape, paint and any adhesive. Wax is ok.
  2. NO metal or wood will be allowed. Use of any “illegal materials” will lead to immediate disqualification.
  3. Sleds must have at least one passenger and max of four (4) passengers on a sled.
  4. You may have a rescue team “assisting the sled over the finish line.”
  5. A liability waiver must be signed by all passengers and participants.
  6. Helmets required for all sled passengers.

Awards will be given out for best design, funniest, most creative helmet and fastest speed.

Great team building and loads of fun for all!
