Eighty-eight beds competed in this year's Bed Race, which was held on Saturday 14 June. Organisers believe that at least 25,000 people came to watch. The overall level of the decorated beds was felt to be the highest ever with thousands of people involved in stitching customs, nailing plywood, creating models, painting finishes and constructing racing beds. Many were absolutely hilarious!

See for yourself. Pictures will appear on this website, on Twitter, Facebook and film on You Tube. The CBBC recorded the event for its Officially Amazing programme.The organisers, the Knaresborough Lions Club, would like to thank those who supported the event - racers, helpers, aids, marshals, volunteers, sponsors and those who came to watch. It was another great Bed Race Day in Knaresborough!
