Bedford Running Festival to be organised by ATW

Active Training World (ATW) are delighted to announce that they have acquired the Bedford Running Festival – 5K, 10K, Half Marathon & 20 Mile from MCD Events. The event takes place annually from Russell Park, Bedford each September and attracts over 6000 people over the weekend. The previous event team will still be heavily involved with the event delivery so the same event that is known and loved will still continue in its same format.

Mark Draper (MCD Events) “ATW have supplied a great deal of the event infrastructure, chip timing, medals and event t-shirts for a number of years so I am thrilled to hand the event over to such safe hands.”

James Shipley (ATW) “The team at ATW are all runners themselves so to add such a prestigious event to our portfolio is fantastic. Along with the St Albans Half Marathon ATW are now organising the largest running events in both Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire which is very exciting! Mark and the team at MCD events have done an amazing job with the Bedford Running Festival and I’m looking forward to seeing the event develop further over the next few years.”

This year’s event weekend will take place between Friday 2nd – Sunday 4th September 2022 and will have the same fantastic Bedford Running Festival atmosphere with the added ActiveTrainingWorld energy.
