Update; 22 January 2015

Tracks back

Wednesday 28 January marks the clubs first track session of the year. It will be looked after by Spencer and Portia and the plan is early season progressive 800's along with some basic running drills - perfect for sprinkling a little speed and discipline back into your running...

This session is suitable for ALL abilities as you get to run at your own pace and it is ideal for all you budding marathoners out there... It would be great to see some new faces at the track this year and some faces that haven't been for a while... Come along and give it a go, you will not regret it.

We will be meeting at Stantonbury track at 6.45pm for the warm up and the cost is £1 for members and £3 for non members

We have got the date for the 2015 OU Relay (this normally starts at 12.30 and each person in the team of four runs1.1 miles) we usually get a big turnout from the club and last year 64 teams took part - it will be held on Wednesday 29 April.
We will start to get names for Redway Runners teams soon.  The course, rules and regulations will be the same as last year.

Santa Pola Half Marathon

Whilst some of us suffered a cold Sunday run in Milton Keynes we had a group of Redway Runners out in Spain doing the Santa Pola Half Marathon - think they enjoyed the sun, the run and the beer.

Eating Disorders workshop

Been asked to pass this on, which may be of interest:
I will be holding a workshop in Northampton on Wednesday 25th February for athletes, parents and coaches about eating disorders and it’s prevalence in sport.

The workshop will be about recognising the early warning signs of disordered eating and disordered thoughts about food. Therefore it will be relevant to all young athletes (not necessarily just those that you think have a problem.)

It will be an interactive workshop with some quiz and reflection time (to help athletes recognise whether they have potential for a problem) some brainstorming, some lecture and information for coaches on what to do if they think an athlete has a problem. There will be full opportunity to ask questions throughout the evening.

I will be dispelling the myths and facts of what it means to be a healthy athlete and impart a fair amount of nutritional advise to help athletes understand how the body is correctly fuelled for optimal performance.

I have attached some information on a poster for you.

If any of your team decide to attend, I am happy to take suggestions of information that the audience would like included in the evening.

Tickets can be reserved by email and I will contact all for payments nearer the time.


Wymondham 20

Been asked to pass on details of this event:
I would be grateful if you could display and distribute to your members our race poster for the Wymondham Ac Spring 20 Mile road race. The 20 Miler is used by many runners to gauge their fitness or simply get in a long run with others in preparation for a spring marathon.

We sold out 325 entries last year and would love to beat that total this year with your support.

Many Thanks in advance, Karl Chapman, Wymondham AC Race Director

Car Parking

We have checked with David Lloyd and during January the car park outside Gulliver's Land will be acting as a overflow car park for David Lloyd - this is also available to our runners as well - it should be open the same times as David Lloyd is open

So great free parking for our Monday and Thursday night runs. Please remember if you are not a David Lloyd member you should not be parking in there car park

Marathon Clinic

Great turnout with 42 for our first Marathon clinic for 2015 our  next clinic is on the 11 February - do get booked as it looks like it may be a sell out with GB Coach Nick Andrews.
