Phil Gray reports in the day:

"A glorious July day as yours truly was helping with a little event known as the Bedford Race For Life 5k. About 6000 plus ladies raising money for Cancer Research UK and in memory of loved ones. I was part of the Harriers posse given marshalling duties for the day as ladies from the region and
beyond made ready for the start.

Some time after 11, 6000 plus addressed a 5k course that looped around the Embankment, before a small loop around Russell Park and the Finish just outside Nicholls Cafe. Good to see Harrier ladies doing their bit, including Delores Wallis and Janet Lehman. I captured some of the action on camera and had the good fortune to be sprinkled with some fairy dust from ladies in angel attire. It's true I tell you as a stream of ladies came past me in the July heat, which must have touched 30 degrees. A cousin of mine in the guise of Shirley Brown was also participating as the last ladies appeared.

Well done to all who went the distance, to all who helped put the whole show together, to the Harriers massive and for a magical and majestic day in Bedford. Time for a beer I think".
