The Programme for the 2013 Great Knaresborough Bed Race has been released.

Sales of the 48-page full colour Programme have begun and copies are available from Knaresborough Lions priced £2.



Apart from listing the teams for the day, the Programme has details of the event, its rules, features on Bed Races of the past, plus stories about local myths and legends – the theme for this year’s race.

The Programme also serves as an entry ticket for adults to Conynham Hall grounds – children of 16 and under get in free.
