Run for the roses? Not exactly.

This is a run for a bed pan. While some Rhody traditions have not lasted (including the Beard Pageant or the Beer Keg Toss) the Bed Race still draws big crowds, with the winning team of 4 runners and one rider (who must weigh 100 lbs or more) earning a silver-plated bed pan for their efforts. The three-time champions were the Safeway grocery store team, with a store clerk glammed up in pink (left); newcomers from the Food Coop (right) were fan favorites immediately, with their carrot-mobile. Keeping the beds on course was the "Kinetic Cop" (center).
