With winds of 43mph forecast for tomorrow (Saturday) morning, the directors of Bedford Parkrun have taken the decision to cancel the event.
“It is with a very heavy heart that I must cancel tomorrow’s parkrun,” said a statement from the run director.
“Winds are set to get up to 43mph which is just a little bit too windy for our liking.”
Bedford Parkrun takes place every Saturday at 9am in Bedford Park. It is a timed 5km run, free for anyone to take part.
“[Runners’] safety will always be our priority and as such we must think about the area that we run in,” continued the statement.
