Gurney Derby

This is a past event.

UAB’s most unique tradition! Dress up in your best costume and race a gurney down 13th Street. 

Teams of four (two men and two women) race down and back on a stretch of 13th Street South while pushing a "passenger" on old hospital gurneys. Awards are handed out to the 1st and 2nd place teams, best-dressed gurney, most creative "passenger," and the "Dead Last Award."
