The clubs committee meeting agreed the club fees for next year (renewal is 31 March) the good news is the clubs membership fee is remaining at £5 (this is the same price that we have kept since the club started). If you add UKA membership, then this fee has been increased by UKA to £12 – was £10.

The club has agreed to continue to subsidise the track fees for those that undertake track and from January this will be just £1 for club members – non members are welcome at £3 per session

Redway Runners Social Evening at MK Lightning Ice Hockey

We are organising a Redway Runners trip to the Milton Keynes Lightning ice hockey match on Saturday 10 January 2015.  The game starts at 19:00 and is against the Sheffield Steeldogs.  As you may have read in the local press, the team have just returned to MK to play their games at a beautifully refurbished ice rink just behind “Argos” and “Toys R Us” near MK Central Station.

We have managed to get an excellent discount on ticket prices.  Adults will cost £7.50 (instead of the normal £12.50) and children under 16 years of age will be charged at £3 (instead of the normal £6.50).  Those who have never been to ice hockey before are in for an evening of a fast paced, hard hitting game with the odd fight here and there!  The game will be over at about 9.15pm.  There is a splendid bar and good food and beverage facilities.  We will all be seated in a block together which will add to the fun.

To book your seats please can you let Kevin Orchard (kevorchard@yahoo.com) know how many tickets you would like?  Bank transfers to Redway Runners account:

Sort code 301553
Number 42390360
Name; Redway Runners
(reference “ice hockey” please)

or cheque (payable to ‘Redway Runners’) to Martin will secure your seats. Absolute closing date will be Wednesday 7 January at 17:00.

If anybody fancies it, we are able to skate for free after the game until 11pm, just needing to pay for skate hire at £2.50

New Club Green hoodie

You have asked and we have listened (well someone asked!)
You wanted the green hoodie without the ‘On Tour’ on it – so we now have added to the shop a green hoodie with the Redway Runners logo EMBROIDERED on to it (currently they are printed).
They are available in adult and children’s sizes and at a very good price of:
– Adult £16.45
– Child sizes £13.45
We have not got a picture yet on the site but it is on the order form on the club site at: http://www.redwayrunners.com/shop/

If you want your name printed on the back then add £1 to the cost

Club Bank Account

The clubs bank account has now been updated, so now if making payments to the club (Cheques/Bank Transfers) these need to be made out to ‘Redway Runners’

Up and Running Winter Half

Redway Runners are manning the water station at mile 9 (Teardrop Lakes) for the Winter half Marathon on 14 December. It’s being led by Diane Gilbert and at least four volunteers are needed to help on the day. If you can help, please get in touch.

Everything will be supplied by the organisers, FQ Events – you will need to be there at 10.00 ready for the first runners coming through around 10.45. This will also be the club cheering point so come along and support the green team.

To celebrate the achievements of all we will be having a social in the evening at the Wetherspoons near the V6 (201 Midsummer Boulevard, Bouverie Square,MK9 1EA) from 19:00 – runners bring your medals

Marathon Training Sunday runs


We now have for the ‘Class of 2015’ the Marathon training runs on Sunday listed on the club web site, so you can start to schedule them into your training plans.

Remember these runs are your runs (we enable them to happen and provide some fun!). As a rough guide the runs start on the first Sunday in January with 1 hour 20 minutes of running and increase about 10 minutes week on week going up to 3 hours of running – the distance that you get on these runs will depend on the speed you run at – only you know what speed you will run at – all we ask is that you are able to run for 80% of the full time of a run (so for a 1 hour 40 minute run ie 100 minutes you should be able to run for 80 minutes).

Like last year many of these runs will have a drop out option at about one hour

If anyone can help out on these runs as a helper or tail bike please let us know – we are always looking for a bigger pool of helpers to make sure these runs work smoothly

All the info for these runs and the details for all the remaining runs for 2014 are at:
