Bring out the beast within

The Beast of Bedford Triathlon & Half Marathon will have its inaugural events this summer at Box End Park.

These events are run & delivered by Keith Holland who is a local swimmer and triathlete, and with the support from local clubs, explorer groups and the Box End venue, this event is going to be a great opportunity for newbies and experienced participants to enjoy together.

Box End Park is a spectacular location and perfect for a Triathlon & Running 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 Beast of Bedford has two events taking place for 2019:

Middle Distance Triathlon – 1.9km Swim, 90km Bike, 20km Run
Half Marathon – 21.09km

Choose your event and face the Beast in this new and exciting challenge for 2019.
