Bedford Running Festival

Bedford Giving is taking part in its first community fundraising event in September and we’re seeking runners, those looking to get fit, or people and families who can simply walk a few miles, to sign up and run in one of the many races being held at Bedford Running Festival. 

We are looking to register a large group of runners for FREE as part of the Bedford Giving’s team, to take part in any of the following races: 

Saturday 7 September 2024

Sunday 8 September 2024

Mini Mile

Half Marathon


20 Miles

Twilight 10K


Bedford Giving Director Paul (PK) Kellett said:

The whole weekend is going to be full of activities and things to do, but of course the races are at the very heart of the event.

“I’ll be taking part in the 5K which will definitely see me walk and jog my way round the course. Come and join me.” 

By running you can help Bedford Giving to continue to run its valuable projects to help young people such as mentoring, World of Work, a grants programme and more are on their way to tackle mental health, and encourage more free youth activities being available in the borough. All fundraising will go towards Bedford Giving’s activities to improve the lives of young people in the borough.

The Bedford Running Festival is more than just a running event, it’s where running meets festival fun. Throughout the weekend, as well as the races, there is entertainment for the entire family – including live music, food and drink, the UK’s biggest mobile bar, an out-door cinema, a health and well-being area, a kids zone and a fun fair.

If you are interested in running for Bedford Giving and making a difference to the lives of young people, fill out the form at and we will get back to you with a registration code that you can use on the official race registration site, as well as links to our fundraising campaign page.
