Often described as a colourful character on and off the track, Bedford has held many positions within the governing body of the sport and regional associations of athletics throughout the UK. He first joined the London Marathon in 1986 as Head of Marketing, and in his capacity as Race Director from 2002 to 2012, created an event which has seen many World Records. Paula Radcliffe holds both of the IAAF World Records with the Women's "Mixed" record set in London 2003; 2:15:25 and the "Women Only" record set in London 2005: 2:17:42. Ultimately, his ability to attract some of the greatest distance runners in history, the world's best wheelchair racers, the interaction and development with the mass field of runners, charities, sponsors and television has made the London Marathon arguably the finest marathon in the World.
