Bedford Running Festival returns to Russell Park with fun for all this weekend

Bedford Running Festival Mini-Miles

Bedford Running Festival is back this weekend with a whole lot more than just running on offer.

While the mini-miles, 5k, 10k, half marathon and 20-mile timed running events will be the main feature, organisers have also been working hard behind the scenes with various partners to create fun for all.

The weekend-long line-up includes Sundown Cinema, live music from Roll Your Own Records, a new kids’ fun fair, a street food market, a licensed bar, sports massage from Bedford University, yoga and wellness classes, and more.

It all kicks off at 5pm on Friday (2 September) with Sundown Cinema showing Dirty Dancing, food vendors, a bar, and music will also be available.

On Saturday (3 September) the running events start with the 5k and mini-miles.

“We are immensely excited and proud to be able to provide a safe, but fun event that everyone, including people who aren’t running, can look forward to and enjoy,” said Managing director, James Shipley.

“Although the event is focused on running races, we have tried our best to create an event that everyone can enjoy. There really is something for everyone at the event!”
