Bed racing takes place in the English town of Knaresborough close to Yorkshire. The competition is held annually since 1966 and requires stamina and endurance. As with ?? land, sea and in the air ?? Participants should build a structure around a bed with a mattress and put it on four wheels as soon as possible a course to pass on so ?? s five kilometers long. The track is heavy, going over hills and valleys, and ends at the deep and icy river Nidd, which must be passed, with the bed itself should be kept as dry as possible.
for the race

Every year, there are so?? s 90 teams at the start. A team consists of six runners and a passenger; usually not too difficult children. But it is not just about the race itself. For the race parade all participating teams with their decorated and beds made of the old medieval city. Each team wore specially made for the occasion suits, often with a medieval twist. The best and most stylish beds rewarded with a prize.
