The Great Knaresborough Bed Race has been held every year since 1966, always on the second Saturday in June, apart from the last three year's due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The popular event is a mighty pageant of decorated beds, passengers and runners, combined with a gruelling athletic contest around a course of 2.4 miles.

Organised by volunteers from the Knaresborough Lions, the event helps to raise much-needed funds to meet local charitable and community needs.
