A race that lets you stay in bed

Competitors in a race for Habitat for Humanity didn't even have to get out of bed Saturday morning, instead they got under the covers and raced beds through The Market Common in Myrtle Beach to raise money for Habitat homes.
The race started at 10 a.m.
There were eleven teams pushing beds, which were outfitted with wheels. They had to race 1/8th of a mile down Johnson Avenue.
Many teams picked themes for their beds including a fenced-in garden bed and a bed completely dedicated to beer.
Organizers said the event drew nearly 400 people to watch those beds come across the finish line.
Habitat for Humanity builds affordable housing in partnership with homeowners, businesses, and sponsors.
