Bed race goes Olympic

ORGANISERS of the Great Knaresborough Bed Race – the Knaresborough Lions – have announced the theme for next year’s event.

Teams will be representing Olympic nations when the popular event takes place on Saturday, June 9, with a lottery held to decide which country is assigned to each of the 90 teams expected to enter.

Entrants can base their display on something cultural, artistic, historical, sporting or on social themes from the countries they are allocated.

Entry forms will be available from January on the bed race’s website
