Entries are now open for this year’s Great Knaresborough Bed Race.
Teams can download entry forms from the event’s website at www.knaresborough.co.uk/bedrace and the completed forms and fees can be submitted anytime until the end of February.
Bed Race chairman Alan Walgate said: “Entry fees have been kept to the same level as last year: £100 for adult teams and £60 for juniors.
“There have been some rule changes but nothing to affect the fun of the racers and spectators.”
The 2013 Bed Race, organised by Knaresborough Lions, will be staged as usual on the second Saturday in June; which this year falls on June 8. The theme for the fancy dress pageant element is Myths and Legends in a nod towards the town’s involvement in tales of the unexplained.
“We’ve had more than our fair share of unusual events and people in Knaresborough, but we want teams to explore the widest possible meanings of the theme so that we get a truly diverse parade,” Mr Walgate added.
