Follow-up marshal briefings now 19 and 21 May; 16th cancelled
Follow-up briefings for 2019 Bed Race marshals will now be held on Sunday 19 May from 6 to 7 pm and on Tuesday 21 May from 7.15 to 8.15 pm, both meetings at the Knaresborough Working Men's Club on Kirkgate. The planned briefing on 16 May has had to be cancelled.
Many marshals attended the formal briefing session on 8 May and the follow-up meetings are for those who were unable to make the earlier event. For marshals attending on behalf of teams it is a condition of entry that marshals attend a briefing session and help steward the race.
The brief is of just a few minutes' duration - getting instructions on location, roles and support for the Parade and Bed Race. It is a critical element of keeping runners and spectators safe on the big day.
