With a month to go before the race, we are still no closer to an answer as to whether Robinson Pool will be open in time. After speaking with Bedford Borough Council at length over the past weeks they cannot guarantee either way. Whilst gradual easing of restrictions have been rolling out over the UK, Bedford seemed to stall in this respect. COVID infection has apparently been higher in this area.

Being optimistic, we decided to wait and see – but it appears this is not the only factor affecting the re-opening of the pool. It’s come to light recently through local press that the Council and the leisure provider that manage the pool (and other leisure facilities in the town) are in dispute.


Knowing how both these entities work, it seems futile to wait any longer for a decision that may never come. Keeping our loyal athletes, helpers and providers hanging on further is not helpful. So we’re sorry to say that this year’s race is now off. Apologies to everyone who was looking forward to racing once again. I hope you can bear with us through this terrible year and enable us to pick up the pieces and restart in 2021.


After starting this race back in 1996 we’ve never missed a year. The support and understanding from everyone this year has been tremendous – we are so grateful.
