This last weekend saw a fantastic turnout by Redway Runners at many events around the UK.
24 runners took part in the Cardiff Half Marathon. Aidy Maidment was the first Redway Runner home in 1:26:45, closely followed by Martyn Douglas with a new PB of 1:26:58. New personal best times were also recorded by Paul Newton, Sarah Jane Bird, Chris Amesbury and Jennifer Sangster. Maeve Fox (2.07.43) and Mandy Hockley (2.25.47) ran their first ever half marathons in very credible times.
Over 25 runners took part in the Bournemouth Marathon Festival. Jamie Farmer was 14th in the Marathon with a time of 2.49.24. New personal bests were recorded in the half marathon by Terence Childs, Sarah King (Pictured below), Jonathan Clements, Neil Solanki and by Patryk Galardziak in the 10km event.
Tony Dalglish finished first in his age group at the Tissington Half Marathon and Abi Gooch came 6th lady in the Blenheim Half Marathon.
In multisport events Nicole Clarke finished 1st lady in the Buckingham Triathlon and the National Duathlon Championships at Oulton Park saw Jane Ritchie win the gold medal in her age group and Kevin Orchard record a personal best time whilst finishing 7th in his age group.
MK parkrun saw a large number of Redway Runner personal bests this week including Genci Pepaj, Andrew Dodds, Simon Baker, Mike King, Helen Whalley, Greg Tappenden, Zaid Alani, Victoria Wells, Jeanne Barby, Jane Hammonds and Theresa Randall.
And finally a special mention for Lucinda Parish who ran the MK parkrun in sub-30 minutes, which was her goal after ten hours of cancer-fighting surgery in July. Lucinda was fundraising for the National Hereditary Breast Cancer Helpline.
Well done to everyone. New members are always welcome – come and join the other 800 members of all abilities to get fit and enjoy yourself.
Another fantastic club trip over to Wales this time for the main event being the Cardiff Half Marathon which is the biggest race in Wales and the third largest in the UK behind the London Marathon and Great North run, the event was fantastically well organised and on a lovely route.
Some of us also too the opportunity to do the Cardiff parkrun on the Saturday morning.
