The Great Knaresborough Bed Race 2019


Last weekend saw the 2019 Great Knaresborough Bed Race. This is fantastic, community event is held in same location as NM Group’s headquarters. This year NM Group sponsored one of the race teams taking part in the charity event.

What is a bed race? For the uninitiated, it certainly conjures up a confusing image. Here is some information on the topic from, 'The Great Knaresborough Bed Race has been held every year since 1966, always on the second Saturday in June. It is a mighty pageant of decorated beds, passengers and runners, combined with a grueling athletic contest around a course of 2.4 miles. It is organized by volunteers from the Knaresborough Lions to raise funds to meet local charitable and community needs.'
