Round MK Relay

Round Milton Keynes Relay will take place on Sunday May 18th.Again this year Abi has agreed to organise the DLRR teams.
The event will be a 4 person (inc at least one lady) relay starting and finishing at Market Square Stony Stratford.

Teams will be started on a handicap basis with the slowest team going off first at approx. 9am. The intention is for all teams to finish close together
Last year they has a record 19 teams and hope to emulate that performance this year.

The legs are:
  • Leg 1 - 16K, Stony
  • Leg 2 - 5.43 miles, Barge Woolstones
  • Leg 3 - 9.61 miles, Brickhill
  • Leg 4 - 10K, Bottledump roundabout
If you are interested in being in a DLRR team please let Abi know by the 31 March (we need name, age on race day, expected time and any preference on which leg you would like to do). the club has decided to make this a key race and will meet the costs of entries for runners who are members of the club on race day - so no reason not to take part.

You can find out more details of the event and the routes on this page:

We would like your help

We are doing a bit of research and it would be great if DLRR members could spend a couple of minutes completing this survey for us - very short and only 4 questions

DLRR Road trip -
Northampton parkrun & Magic Mile

DLRR road trip over the Northampton parkrun event 96 today and 238 finishers and 21 from the club. It was a very cold morning and a fairly thick fog descended for the event and the magic mile afterwards - but lifted the moment the runs finished - not sure what that means!

Swimming Googles

Had this from our friends at Body Limits Transition - and in DLRR colour and a DLRR discount! - so if interested get in touch with Tom at the shop in Stacey Bushes
After a discussion with my Aquasphere rep, we have looked at getting in a very good pair of swim goggles, that are tinted lens for open water swimming, but more importantly, they are DLRR colours! I was wondering if these would interest any of your members who are doing triathlon this summer?
They retail at £21, but if a few of the team were interested and would pre-order, I could do a DLRR special at £18. They are a fantastic goggle, I use the clear lens for all my pool swimming and have no leaking or problems with fit.
There are some models in store if people want to try first. I'll attach a picture below for you to have a look at. Once they have a look and try them on, they will want a pair!
Let me know if this is of any interest, and wish everyone luck for me this weekend.

Your fund raising

If you want to be included - then send me the details at the bottom of the page

Ridge Off Roader 10km race

Been asked to share details of this event:

Some of your runners competed in our inaugural Ridge Off Roader 10km race last year and we would love to see them at the event again this year.
It is a friendly and fairly small event (we had c.300 runners last year) and is organized by a group of local parents to raise money for Bledlow Ridge village school. We have a challenging but beautiful route which takes runners along the footpaths, bridleways and lanes of the Chiltern Hills around the village.
This year’s event will take place at 10am on Sunday 27th April 2014 and will start and finish at the village school like last year.
This year we have added a 6.5km run for those that fancy a slightly shorter and gentler distance and, for those that have children that need entertaining while they are running, we have 2 fun runs of 1km and 2km, both in the school grounds. I attach entry forms for all 4 races.
The Race HQ will have plenty to entertain runners, spectators and supporters alike with massages before, during and after the race, a free range bbq serving hot dogs and bacon butties, fresh real coffee, tea and homemade cakes as well as a bouncy castle and face-painting to keep any children busy.

Full details and photos from last year’s event can be found on our website and runners can keep abreast of latest news on our facebook page

Midnight Moo 2014

Been asked to pass on details of the Midnight Moo:

The Willen Hospice MK Midnight Moo is back for its sixth successive year on Saturday 12th July 2014, and is calling on the ladies of Milton Keynes to get moving and join in with the fun on the biggest, ladies only, night out in the Milton Keynes calendar.
The MK Midnight Moo returns to Midsummer Place Shopping Centre with a fantastic multi-coloured theme!  The care that Willen Hospice provides to its patients and loved ones is as diverse as the people that walk through the doors – and the MK Midnight Moo 2014 will reflect this diversity with our varied, multi-hued scheme.
Ladies who have participated before are encouraged to wear any previous years Moo T-Shirts, from white, pink, green, and orange, to last year’s blue.  T-Shirts can be personalised giving flamboyant ladies creative reign to make this year’s Moo the biggest, brightest and most vibrant event to date. New Moo walkers will receive a new t-shirt.
Places are limited for this fun night out so register today!  Walkers need to be 14 years or older to take part. The Registration Fee of £20 only covers the cost of running the event, so we rely on the sponsorship money you raise to contribute directly to the care our patients and loved ones receive from Willen Hospice.  This year we are suggesting a minimum sponsorship of £100 per walker and this will ensure that your personal challenge of walking 10 miles will help to fund the cost of a Staff Nurse for one shift at the Hospice.
Paul Hinson, Willen Hospice Chief Executive commented “The sixth year of the MK Midnight Moo promises to be a unique and amazing event with its multi-colored theme.  The previous year’s events have raised over £600,000, providing much needed funds to ensure Willen Hospice continues to provide free care to the local community of Milton Keynes and surrounding areas.”
