The Beast of Bedford Half Marathon and Triathlon routes

Box End Park is a spectacular location and perfect for a Half Marathon event, with its superb facilities there will also be lots to do for supporting spectators and the whole family with the on site Aqua Park, Wake Boarding, Cable ski and hopefully the British summer sunshine to make this day enjoyable and memorable for everyone attending.

The run course is around the lake and should be hard standing if the weather has been kind to us, but is flat and takes in multiple laps so you can be cheered on each lap by fellow participants and supporters before being welcomed down the finish line.

Triathlon -

The Beast of Bedford Middle Distance Triathlon consists of a 1.9km Swim, 90km Bike & 20km Run.

The swim is in a fresh water lake, which is super clean and clear, but most importantly safe to swim in for any nervous open water swimmers.

The bike course is relatively flat, potentially fast, and safe with fairly quiet open roads to take you around the local country side. The route will be 3 laps up through Cranfield and then back down to Wootton.

The run course is around the lake and should be hard standing if the weather has been kind to us. It's flat and takes in 4 laps of offroad trail, so you can be cheered on each time by fellow participants and supporters before being welcomed at the finish line.
