Gurney Tourney

NASCAR may be the largest spectator sport in the region, but if you’re looking for one of the wackiest races that benefits a good cause, check out the annual Gurney Tourney sponsored by Anthem. This grown-up version of a soapbox derby uses good-old hospital gurneys. Sponsored teams run timed races, navigating their outrageously decorated gurneys down the midway to the Richmond International Raceway while participating in the tasks required at numerous obstacle stations. The event is a joint venture between the Hospital Hospitality House and the MCVH Auxiliary, in conjunction with the VCU Medical Center.
