Volunteers, we need your help!


We are once again looking for an enthusiastic and energetic team to join us for the 2019 Bedford Running Festival!

There are a range of roles to choose from across the weekend; from supporting and cheering our runners at either the 5K, 10K or Half Marathon, to being part of our open-air cinema, yoga and wellbeing areas.

As a volunteer, you will be given a Bedford Run Fest Event Team Tee as well as a ticket to one of our open-air cinema showings, something you can enjoy post shift! Snacks, refreshments and lunch will also be provided.

To join the team for this year, please follow the button below and complete the registration form selecting the days and shifts you are available for, as well as selecting the role you would prefer to do. We will then be in touch to confirm your role and will endeavour to match it to your preference.

Our team of wonderful volunteers make the event and we couldn’t do it without you all – THANK YOU for your continued support!

If you have any questions regarding volunteering at the Bedford Running Festival, please emails us at
