HSO team tackles the Bed Race!

May 12, 2019

A plucky team from Harrogate Symphony Orchestra is tackling this year’s  Great Knaresborough Bed Race. This legendary event takes place on Saturday 8th June.

The 2-mile course includes steep hills, cobbled streets and the grand finale – a swim across the River Nidd!  Before all that is the carnival parade, with beds from 90 teams decorated according to this year’s theme – “Yorkshire”. Look out for a very musical take on this from the HSO team.

The team features players from around the orchestra, and includes some Bed Race ‘veterans’ as well as people who have never run it before.

As well as the fun of the day (and the training beforehand), HSO’s runners are raising funds for the orchestra’s chosen charity for 2019, which is once again the Harrogate Homeless Project. We are aiming to raise over £500.
