About this parkrunFirst ever parkrun for me. Of special note is the zig zag climb up some big steps before a nice lap of the lake. Haven't been back since Bedford parkrun started, but I remember it with fondness, especially when there was snow and the lake froze over.

An award winning single lap parkrun around Willen Lake - without a doubt road shoes.

A lovely one lap course entirely on good paths. One steep zig-zag after one mile the only climb. Is popular, can get congested.

One lap course regularly voted best/prettiest parkrun. 600ish runners every week. Single lap. All relatively flat except the famous 'zigzags' just after mile 1 which are the disabled access to the park. Loads to see. Definitely road shoes

Scenic route taking in the canal and lake. Tends to get a bit bottle necked at the start so unless you're near the front you can lose time there. Zig zags also slow you down a bit but from there it's downhill and round lake. Can get very busy too.

Tough first half and absolutely stunning second half, what more could you want

Big event, including runs along canal towpath, some steep zig-zags up a hill, then a downhill section before finishing with a lap of Willen Lake. Bandstand finish. There have been different versions of this parkrun, the current route is the best.
