Knaresborough Bed Race

Madcap event organised by Knaresborough Lions and held in June. Teams of six plus one passenger decorate their bed to the annual theme for a colourful parade through the town. The race itself is held over a 3km course, ending in a climb up the 1 in 5 gradient of Castle Hill and descent to cross the River Nidd to the finish. The event has a carnival atmosphere but the runners work hard and there is fierce competition, all money raised going to various charities.
