Bedford parkrun is on its way. A free 5k course suitable for all abilities and all ages.Runners (joggers, walkers) are welcome to exercise with buggies and dogs and is is also wheelchair friendly. Bedford parkrun will be welcoming runners across the range from those just starting out to those who have been running for over twenty years and we are not concerned whether you can run 10, 20 or 30+ minutes without stopping - the achievement is actually getting out and doing it!

There have been a couple of 'blips' to the starting date and location due to one or two things but we anticipate a start within February 2011.

Further information will be posted here and once the parkrun is up and running, the information will also be found at too.

If you are interested in helping out with this event and / or have any queries, please feel free to contact me to leave a message here.

Thank you and happy running

It would be good to keep the first parkrun date a secret so that I have a better chance of coming first. Having said that I will also end up marshaling, time keeping, tail running etc etc - it's good to multi task

I will keep you all posted on here but am really looking forward to it (and fancy dress is option) .......

Full steam ahead   We are officially up and running from June 2011 (this will ensure that all of the equipment is in perfect working order and that some of the parkrun crew are back from Edinburgh Marathon).

 Find us on Facebook.... Bedford parkrun

Looking forward to welcoming all parkrunners to Bedford parkrun!
