MUST SEE: Hospital bed races

Posted:

Illinois (CNN)- It's a yearly tradition in East Moline, Illinois, an assortment of characters race for the gold.

The annual hospital bed races, a part of the firecracker run, had several unusual entries this year. Among them were three teams of pirates, a team of Elvis impersonators, and even a panda. In the end it was the noble 5, a family of runners, that took home the gold. The team says it plans to defend its title next year.
