Participants from different places around the have gathered in China for  
a  2-Day Sleeping Competition and are eager to get the ultimate prize.

While many people are packing their suitcases for a trip during China’s seven-day National Day holiday, some people in Harbin, Heilongjiang Province, are packing their sleepwear for a sleeping competition.

The competition lasted two days and participants needed to sleep on their deck chair from 9:30 am to 7:30 pm.

 During the 10-hour sleeping marathon, the competitors cannot leave their chair for bathroom or meal breaks, or touch any electronic devices.

On the first day, a total of 16 people finished the competition, while only eight stayed the course on the second day amid the rain and temperatures falling to as low as 0℃ at dusk.

Although it was cold, participants were also not allowed to leave to get thicker quilts.

“I will win the game for my parents because winners are awarded a two-day stay at a spring hotel in Dalian, a coastal city. I want to take them there,” a female participant told the Harbin-based newspaper, Modern Evening Times.

“My girlfriend registered for me. I will prove that I can win,” a participant, nicknamed Leifeng Cap, said.

It was reported that the sleeping competition was not only a respite from electronics, but a challenge to people’s physical well-being.
