Transport and parking

There is strictly no event parking at Priory Park. We are providing car parking at Everard Meadow, off Cardington Roundabout. Please follow footpath signage from there to Priory Park, which is roughly a 10 minute walk. Please ensure you arrive early with plenty of time to get to the event before the start time. Late arrivals will be re-directed to avoid a late start time for other participants. 

The course

The Bedford course is a fairly flat course weaving through the spacious fields of Priory Park, travelling through woodland areas and taking in the beautiful views of Priory lake. This event has an amazing atmosphere with plenty of spectator points along the course.

Meeting point

The meeting point is next to Priory Lake, near to the visitor centre.
