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.
