10 Bedford Harriers took part in the inaugural "Bedford Clanger" on Sunday 14th March organised by Noel Jones. The route was a 27 mile circular course, mostly off road following footpaths and where possible staying in open countryside. We started at Box End Park and circumnavigated around Bedford passing through or near Box End, Bromham, Oakley, Clapham, Brickhill, Salph End, Willington, Cople, Cardington, Shorts Town, Elstow and Kempston. 57 runners took part including myself as sweep.

Competitors were given written instructions describing the route. Three check points kept track of runners and provided water, squash, jelly babies, biscuits and two types of cake. We were blessed with great weather and the river had thankfully subsided to normal levels so the alternative route did not have to be used. There are quite a few photos at http://theracephotographer.co.uk/Bedford_Clanger/index.htm

 I'd like to thank everyone that helped for their support. It wouldn't have been possible without the willing help of many friends within the Bedford Harriers and in the Fetch Everyone community (www.feteveryone.com). Sylvia Jones and Lynn Christison kept the HQ running smoothly and had the hot drinks waiting for our return. To top it all off there were home made Bedford Clangers to eat.

 The race was put on to raise money for the Bedford Hospitals Charity. The total raised looks to be in excess of 430.
