Bedford Half Marathon – Saturday 2nd September 2017

I have never been to Bedford before so I wasn’t sure what to expect.  I was surprised it only took 1 ½ hours to arrive from Norwich.  The start was in a gorgeous park called Priory Park.  It reminded me a bit of Whitlingham in Trowse.  It was surrounded by woods and lakes.  The sun was shining and it was a beautiful morning.  3000 entries started the course, it was all off road taking in a couple of laps of the woods before looping back to the park.  It was flat too!

This was Bedford’s first half marathon so I was expecting them to have a few teething problems.  On the contrary, it was so well organised and thought out.  We received a really great t-shirt and medal plus goodie bag.   It has got to be one of my favourite half marathons now and I have already signed up for 2018 which will take place on 2nd September.  I can highly recommend this course.
