Time running out for Knaresborough Bed Race entries

Published by Harry Long at 2:43pm 17th February 2020. (Updated at 2:49pm 17th February 2020)

Teams are being reminded to get their entries in for this year's Great Knaresborough Bed Race.

  • The Bed Race will be held on Saturday 13th June.
  • The final date for entries is Saturday 29th February
  • Teams are being urged to get their entries in before the deadline.  

The final date for entries is Saturday 29th February.  The race will be held on Saturday 13th June, with this year's theme being The Environment.

The event has been held every year since 1966 without missing a year, and has been organised by Knaresborough Lions since 1998.

A fancy dress parade through the town is followed by a race over a gruelling 2.4 mile course.

Teams Coordinator Martin Brock said:

“We are really excited about this year’s theme. The parade is always a fantastic spectacle and we expect this year to be no exception. Teams will be free to as creative as they want when coming up with their bed designs, but we will encourage them to reuse, recycle and repurpose materials when decorating their beds to fit with the theme of the environment.”
