A new 10k road run is being launched in Bedford by a group that works to promote the town.

The Love Bedford sponsored run will cover some of the town’s most attractive streets and pass key landmarks.

Taking place on Sunday, June 7, the road race is expected to attract thousands of runners and supporters and the finishing line will be at Russell Park.

There will also be a market area set up in the park where businesses will be able to promote themselves.

The run costs £18 to take part and will start from 10am at The Embankment. Visit
