Marathons 2017

Club Marathon Training runs
The Club Sunday runs from January become marathon training runs - these runs start with 1 hour 20 minutes of running (most weeks an hour drop out option and we should have Step Up Sunday runs as well) and increase in time by 10 minutes per week, peaking for the Milton Keynes and London (and many other spring Marathons). Details will be on the club Sunday run page when ready.

Again next year we will be holding a marathon clinic for runners - we will have details and booking information available soon - these are essential for those running the first marathon or 100th, so as soon as info is released ger the date in your diary and get booked up

Club London Marathon ballot

Big Fun Run

Race Results

Had a link to this web site sent through that has some interesting but limited data for results, only includes a few distances at the moment, it lists people who have registered Redway Runners as club - we have no control over the data, but thought worth sharing.
I've built a results website called for EMGP, LRRL and other race results including the Silverstone 10k.
The site has easy access to results by runner name or club and allows comparison of results per age group. Thanks
Mark Kendrick
