Join the party with thousands of others at one of the three great events on offer during the 2019 Bedford Half Marathon Weekend! You'll be providing palliative, neurological and bereavement support with every step.

Returning to the same much-loved routes as last year, the Bedford Half Weekend promises to be even bigger and even better than before, especially with the addition of the Bedford 5K to the existing Twilight 10K and Bedford Half.

After tackling the route of your choice, runners will be welcomed across the finish line in the beautiful Priory Country Park before celebrating in style.

The weekend of events has been revamped for 2019, and runners of all distances will receive an eye-catching medal, and other sought-after goodies.


The 5K and 10K are on Saturday 31st August, and the Half is on Sunday 1st September.
