The Knaresborough Bed Race organisers have put a call out for more volunteers to come forward to help marshal the event on 14 June 2014.
John Dickson, teams coordinator for the race said: We have a critical shortage of marshals. This is not due to a problem with teams supplying marshals but due to a reduction of volunteers from other sources.
However the problem has reached the point where we are considering shortening the route.
If this becomes necessary the Parade and Race would exit the Market Square via Boots the chemist instead of Silver Street. The marshal’s planned for Silver Street would then be re-deployed around the course.
Obviously we do not wish to take this step.
