Organiser's Description


This flat, fast, traffic-free and chip timed event is a sure-fire guaranteed way to give you the best chance of a PB over the 10 mile distance.

The 10 mile distance is popular with runners early in the year for many reasons. For some its the start of a Spring marathon build up, for others its the unique distance that they like to challenge themselves annually on, and for many its simply a winter challenge to provide an early-year target to kick-start their fitness drives.

This single lap course starts and finishes on the beautiful Bedford Embankment and runs out alongside the flat, tree lined river Ouse. Heading out towards the Grange Estate on hard standing traffic-free paths, you will loop around the leafy estate before heading back to Priory Park and an orbit of the beautiful Priory Lake before tackling a final mile on the paths alongside the River Ouse and a finish line back on the embankment.

The whole route is on traffic-free tarmac or firm paths and with less than 100m of elevation across the whole course its bound to be a crowd pleaser.

This event is more than just a run. You’ll be warmed up with personal trainers, welcomed home by a professional commentator and your cheer-squad will be kept fed and watered by quality caterers while you run.

A FREE Children’s Fun Run will also take place before the 10 mile start (no need to book, just turn up to registration, and you’re welcome to use it as a warm-up for the main event!)
