This course winds its way through the scenic Priory Country Park, taking in beautiful scenes of natural spaces and Priory Lake along the way. It is a mostly flat course with a mixture of pathways, woodland and grassy terrains. This event has an amazing atmosphere with plenty of spectator points along the course.
The event starts and finishes to the side of the visitor centre, next to Priory Lake.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to an England Athletics event that’s being held at Bedford International Athletics Stadium, parking has changed for this year's events!
You may still use the event parking at the Bedford International Athletics Stadium, but you will need to pay £3 cash per vehicle.
As a free of charge alternative, we have organised an event car park to be set up in the riverside field along Longholme Way, between Tesco Extra and Bedford Girls' School. This free of charge car park is a slightly longer walk to the start area (approximately 20 minutes, rather than 10 minutes). Please use postcode MK42 0BQ to access this car park and follow signage for free parking on the day.
Once parked in either of these locations, you will need to follow pedestrian footpath signs to walk to the event site.
Unfortunately this event is not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs due to the nature of the terrain.
Don’t forget to bring your friends and family along to support you. They can stroll around the stalls including tasty food and drinks and be inspired by the amazing atmosphere of the event, before cheering you on as you walk, jog or run.
