Do you have the ‘Need for Speed’ then Redway Runners have a free 10 week course for you

Need for speed

So what is it all about, well these are the details


This is for anyone who wants to get quicker with their 5K time. It is for people who can run 5K, and wants to put in the effort to improve your time

You must be a member of Redway Runners and for the first week of bookings is only open to those who have not booked a previous course


A 10 week course, with weekly sessions and homework extra sessions for you to do


Meeting at various locations around Milton Keynes each week


We have four courses  and each session will be at the same time each week, each session will be about 45 minutes, week one will meet outside the pub at Willen Lake (next door to the gym)


Milton Keynes 5K parkrun on Saturday 6 July 2019 will be the ‘Morning of the PB’s’

What will I need?

You will need to be able to make each weekly session, desire to improve, these will not be social runs.

It helps us leading, if runners can wear club green tops for each session

For Winter courses, the time for these sessions could mean it will be dark, so wear florescent / light clothing and will need a head torch.

How Do I book
