The much-loved Great Knaresborough Bed Race returned at the weekend and we take a look at some of the best pictures from the day.

This historic event saw 90 teams push, pull, and swim their decorated beds through a gruelling 2.4 mile course.

The theme for this years event was ‘Great Inventions And Technology Through The Ages’.

Organised by volunteers from the Knaresborough Lions, the event helps to raise much-needed funds for local charities and community causes.

GH Brooks Men won the race for the second year running in a time of 13 minutes and two seconds.

Ripon Runners Ladies were the fastest female team, who finished in 13th position, in a time of 16 minutes and 48 seconds.

The Rocket Men were awarded the Best Dressed Bed award.
