A different kind of sled race will be held at Blackwater Falls sled run.

Contestants will use their own ideas to build sleds made entirely out of duct tape and cardboard.

Racers will ride their homemade sleds down the Blackwater Falls sled run on February 23.

Registration only costs a dollar and starts at 9 a.m. Saturday and the race begins at 11 a.m.

 

Three awards will be given, the "Tip Top" for most appealing sled, "Spirit" for the team having the most fun, and "Speed" for the fastest time.

Only duct tape and corrugated cardboard materials will be allowed.
