Sunday run - 8 June

Sunday run this week is going to be a little different and fun - we are starting at Body Limits shop in Stacey Bushes at 9.00 as usual and we have a 1 hour 30 minute run with a drop out at about 50 minutes

On the day they Body Limits shop will do 15% for us (usually 10% for paid members), they have a really nice selection of clothing and shoes in the shop at the moment.

They will make sure there are some ring donuts for you guys for afterwards - yes they have a coffee shop for after the run (that is at Tims request from last time!)

Also on the run this Sunday (weather permitting) Steve is bringing along the Quad copter to take some aerial shots of the run for a short film we are hoping to make - so wear your green tops (must do my hair!!) the shots from this type of filming looks fantastic

In the press - MK Pulse

We do well in the June Edition of the MK Pulse magazine with club member Abi Gooch featured on page 10 with an article on her Sahara adventure with the Marathon des Sables, then on page 16 club members Paul Sutherland, Jen Sangster and Stephen Richardson get a mention for the Milton Keynes Marathon

Running club author completes marathon 76

Running & performance coach Mark Kleanthous used his coaching skills running & experience from his previous 75 marathons to complete his 76th marathon (26.2 miles) at the Kent marathon at the weekend
53 years young Mark finished a creditable 34th overall in a time of 3 hours 22 minutes 33 seconds and average of 7 minutes & 40 seconds per mile for 26.2 miles.
Mark is a member of Milton Keynes David Lloyd Redway Runner
In this picture Mark is seen all smiles at the start, he was still smiling at the end.
The marathon was held on a closed road Cycle circuit which involved 17 laps and Mark had enough energy to give running advice to other competitors during the multiple lap marathon.
The Cyclo circuit offers a smooth, tarmac circuit  for running that is 6 metres wide but had a hill that had to be run up 17 times
Winner was Adam Stokes in 2:42:12 such was the demands of this marathon only 8 ran sub 3 hours and due to the hot weather 19 were not able to finish. The final competitor known as Lanterne Rouge completed the marathon in 6 hours 48 minutes 20 seconds
Mark also competes in triathlons and likes to swim and cycle the week after a marathon to speed up the recovery and prevent injuries
He is author of The Complete Book of Triathlon Training and has launched his new book Triathlon – The Mental Battle 3 weeks ago about effective coping strategies to over come fears
Throughout the summer he will be competing in running and triathlons events to add to his total of more than 1,000 events world wide and will be practising what he advises his athlete to do
