The America’s Mattress Race, originally scheduled for 11 a.m. Saturday, has been pushed back to 1 p.m. to allow more time for mattress-racing teams to register, according to Melissa Rock, marketing director at Shawnee Peak.

Now it its fourth year, the race encourages competitors to drag out their old twin, full or king and race it down the mountain’s Main Slope. Speeds on the 150- to 200-yard course have been known to reach 30 to 35 mph. Helmets are required.

The fastest team will win a new mattress and box springs – and old mattresses will be disposed of by race organizers.

There’s a $5 “mattress fee” to register and participants need a season pass or a lift ticket for the day.
