Russell Park, Bedford, Bedfordshire, MK40 3RH
This chip timed event is a sure-fire guarantee to give you the best chance of a PB in the Half-Marathon or 10k while supporting the Blues Foundation.
The one lap 10k course starts and finishes on the beautiful Bedford Embankment and runs out alongside the flat, tree lined river Ouse. After heading out towards Priory Park and a lap of the beautiful Priory Lake you’ll return to the Embankment over the Town Bridge and hearing the cheers of the crowds at the finish line.
Those tackling the Half Marathon will head back out for a second-lap with a slight extension to make up the accurate 21.1km (13.1 mile) Half Marathon distance.
The course will have both kilometre markers for the 10k and mile markers for the Half Marathon.
The whole route is on traffic-free tarmac or firm paths and with less than 50m of elevation across the 10k, and 100m across the Half Marathon its bound to be a PB buster!
This event is more than just a run. You’ll be warmed up with personal trainers, welcomed home by a professional commentator and your cheer-squad will be kept fed and watered by quality caterers while you run.
Don't forget to purchase your event T-Shirt! Via the merchandise tab.
A fantastic Fun Run will also take place at 9 am, half an hour before the half marathon & 10k! If you've already entered the 10k or half marathon you are welcome to join in the fun run for FREE! The Family Fun Run is open to all ages however children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult with their own ticket.
