Aspire, a national charity that provides practical help to people who have been paralysed by Spinal Cord Injury, is delighted to announce a partnership with Sports Massage Bedford and Galeforce Events for a brand new 10km run which will see hundreds of runners taking to the streets of Bedford on Sunday 7th June.

Run Bedford will start on Bedford's beautiful Victorian embankment, then go along the tree-lined Park Avenue, DeParys Avenue, and the High Street, finishing in grand style alongside the Great Ouse. The course is flat and very fast!

Steve Young (Galeforce Events) and Ken Parsons (Sports Massage Bedford) commented: “We have researched the top 10 races of this kind in the country and know this course is up there with the best.  We are also offering every runner the chance to select their own race number in return for a small donation to the Run Bedford Aspire JustGiving Page. We are excited to be working with Aspire. “

Brian Carlin, CEO of Aspire, commented: “We are delighted to be joining forces with Sports Massage Bedford and Galeforce Events for this new running event.  Every eight hours someone is paralysed by a spinal cord injury in the UK.  Being part of this event will enable us to not just raise awareness but also raise vital funds to help us to continue to provide the practical services we offer to spinal cord injured people.”
