Rich to Run 85 Miles in Under 24 Hours

Over the weekend of the 5th and 6th August, Rich Reynolds is planning to run Bedfordshire’s 85 mile John Bunyan Trail in under 24 hours to raise funds for the 2026 Festival Appeal on behalf of Mercury Lodge.

WHY? Well because its there – but more importantly because it’s a physical and mental challenge that he can’t do on his own.

Apart from the legacy of the route’s namesake, the trail is an ancient and historic path approaching 4 of Bedfordshire’s 6 major Masonic centres (Bedford, Ampthill, Luton and Biggleswade) – so we hope the scope of the challenge will appeal to Brethren across the province as we all face our own personal mountains.
