Bedford Running Festival

Bedford Half Marathon

This year, Magpas Air Ambulance are honoured to be one of the charity partners of Bedford Running Festival on Saturday 31st August and Sunday 1st September.  

The weekend consists of the Bedford Half Marathon, a Twilight 10K run, live music, street food, yoga classes and more. It's fun for all the family and whether you're a serious runner or fancy setting yourself a challenge for 2019, it's definitely the place to be this summer weekend! 

Run for Magpas

Magpas Air Ambulance are very excited to offer you exclusive places in both the Half Marathon and the Twilight 10K, so why not set yourself a challenge, run for Magpas and help us to raise vital funds for our lifesaving cause.

We have 25 places available for the Bedford Twilight 10K run on the Saturday afternoon and 19 places available for the Bedford Half Marathon on the Sunday morning. We request that all our runners raise a minimum of £300 for us. 

For more information about the event or to book your place to run for us today, please email the Magpas Fundraising Team at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

All funds raised for Magpas Air Ambulance can help our advanced medical team travel by land or air to people who need it most, like 8 year old Bedfordshire-based Maddy, who was just 8 years old when she was impaled on some railings whilst playing with friends. Maddy suffered severe abdominal injuries and urgently needed the specialist skills of the Magpas Air Ambulance medics. The enhanced doctor and paramedic team provided Maddy with advanced pain relief at the scene, before airlifting her to hospital.

Maddy has made a full recovery and is now a happy, confident, 16 year old and a perfect example of the critical difference our charity can make. Maddy said, "I couldn't be more grateful for everything Magpas Air Ambulance did for me and I want to do everything I can to help the charity's amazing cause." 

Magpas Air Ambulance is not government funded and we're only able to do what we do thanks to the generous donations of our supporters and fundraisers. 

We need your help to be able to continue to provide services that help change the lives of people in need of urgent pre-hospital emergency medicine, both in and around the Bedfordshire area and also further afield in the areas we serve.
