Bed Race

The Great Knaresborough Bed Race is the Lions’ biggest event of the year and a fantastic day out in Knaresborough for an estimated 30 to 35 thousand people. It’s an unforgettable experience for competitors and spectators alike.

The Bed Race takes place each year on the second Saturday of June. The highlights of the day include the judging of the best dressed bed at the Castle, a parade of the beds through the town, entertainments and stalls at Conyngham Hall, and of course, the spectacular race itself.

The Bed Race 2017 results and awards can be seen here.
