Program Notes

Racing bobsleds that we often see today are usually the competitive type used in Olympic competition. However, competitive bobsled racing only started in the late 1860s. These competitive bobsleds, which usually run in manufactured ice chutes, propelled by gravity, are the product of the evolution from a much more basic model. Earlier, bobsleds, quite common on farms for many years, were made of two shorter sleds in tandem, and usually pulled by horses through the snow across the countryside. Bobsled Run is a tribute to the excitement of these earlier rides.
