A fast, flat course in the beautiful Marston Vale country park with lots of PB potential!

how it all started

In Autumn 2004 Ampthill & Flitwick Flyers mused about their portfolio of races and were looking to extend the races on offer. After much consideration Flyer, Zac Hollis coined the idea of racing in Marston Vale Millennium Country Park.

The Flyers Committee embraced the opportunity, and the Forest Centre were quick to get involved. The calendar was checked, and a 5k distance and date was agreed. The race would be called the "Marston Vale Forest 5K" and it has taken place every year since then.

So, whether you an experienced runner looking to achieve a new PB or you want to run your first ‘official’ 5k this race is for you. The course is flat, and you run around paths within the beautiful Marston Vale Country Park.

We are known for our friendly well organised races with encouraging marshals to cheer you on.

FREE parking is available at this Friday evening race and is popular with runners from Bedford, Luton, Hitchin, and Milton Keynes.
