Can all our pacers for parkrun on Saturday please be around the start line for 8:45 to collect their special pacing bibs (back and front) and safety pins and we shall get a photo of the group.

As it is a special 5th Birthday celebration it would be great to get everyone from the club wearing their RR club T shirts too!

The pacing bibs very kindly created just for us by the team over at Resultsbase. Check out their website for entry and results to loads of races and events:

New Evening Beginners Group

Well, over 80 Beginners signed up for the Monday evening group and over 80 turned up, together with the helpers we had over 100 in the group! Do not know many would have turned up if it hadn't been raining!

A massive 'Thank you' to everyone who came to help. They did a fantastic job in very difficult circumstances!

Glenn is running homework sessions on Wednesday and Thursday at 18.00 - remember we have a daytime beginners group starting on Monday 19 January - meet in reception at 9.45

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 Sunday run this week as we are meeting at Willen and Monday nights - especially with our beginners groups starting from next Monday and it is likely to be very busy on Monday with well over 200 runners and also for Thursday runs.

Please remember if you are not a David Lloyd member you should not be parking in there car park

Cross Country

Great turnout for Redway Runners for the Cross country at Campbell Park last Saturday and some great support as well
All the results are at:

There were no times taken at the races due to a shortage of officials and they apologies for the omission

The men's team are top of the league and the ladies 6th - lets have a great turnout for the last match on the 7 February at Milton Keynes, Teardrop Lakes

Marathon Clinic

Great turnout with 42 for our first Marathon clinic for 2015 with Andy Hully Marathon Director for the MK Marathon and Half, Russell Dobbs who is a member of the 100 marathon club so loads of experience and advice and Mark Kleanthous, Ironmate - lots of tips and information. Sadly Sweatshop did not manage to make the evening.

Hope you enjoyed and got lots of info - 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.

Those who paid and did not make it we will carry your booking forward to the next one - more at:
