Bedford International Athletics Stadium has
built up a very good national reputation over the years. It hosts a
diverse range of national competitions due to its widely recognised
outstanding facilities offered to athletes and spectators. In late
2010, the stadium underwent refurbishment to install a new state of
the art, eight lane floodlit race track. It is the same type of
running surface that the London stadium has for the 2012
Councillor Doug McMurdo, Portfolio Holder for
Leisure and Culture said: “Bedford is proud to host the National
Track and Field Championships. The Bedford International Athletics
Stadium is truly a great asset to our town in attracting the best
sports men and women Britain has to offer with its top of the range
facilities that cater for all manner of sports.”
The event is open to spectators and tickets
