Bedford Triathlon

9 August 2020

Event Overview

Bedford Triathlon – Hosted by Bedford Harriers

Olympic Distance Triathlon & Aquabike in Bedford Town Centre

Bedford Harriers’ reputation in offering high quality and friendly running races is now extended to Triathlon. The riverside location, close to the centre of Bedford, with a river swim alongside the magnificent Embankment is followed by a fast bike route in the Bedfordshire countryside and a flat three lap run along the river and around Russell Park. Both the swim and run are excellent areas for supporters to see and cheer you on.

After a successful first race in 2019 we are offering an Aquabike option in 2020.


  • Top 3 Male & Female and 1st in Age Group Trophies
  • Relay
  • Race Memento + Optional Medal
  • Cash prizes
  • Aquabike prizes dependent on entries

The race is suitable for both Elite and experienced athletes, but also those new to the sport who want to experience their first open water triathlon in a beautiful location.

The spread of covid-19 is unprecedented in our times and the future of racing through the summer uncertain. The UK government has banned all mass sporting events and BTF has currently suspended all events until 30th April. The government is seeking to spread the curve such that the epidemic peaks in mid-summer which may mean the Bedford Triathlon will be after that and can proceed as planned, which we very much hope. No decision will be made about Bedford Triathlon 2020 until later in the year. Whilst entries remain open we recommend waiting until the situation becomes clearer.
