Talk to the team about the Milton Keynes Marathon in May
The MK Marathon event is consistently ranked in the top 10 UK marathons, an AIMS/IAAF Grade A certified race, with BARR Gold accreditation for outstanding race management. We’re blessed with a tremendous amount of natural beauty in Milton Keynes. We’re also lucky to have a world-class system of cycle paths. We do our best to take advantage of those factors to give our runners a course that’s interesting, inspiring, fun to run, fast and different from other marathons. We also offer a half marathon, marathon relay (teams of 4 runners take on the marathon distance) and Superhero Fun Run
The day before the marathon is the popular MK Rocket 5K which is fast and fun. In addition to the MK Rocket 5K finisher medals, runners who participating in both the Sunday 5K and the Marathon, Half or Relay will receive a third medal – the MK Challenge Medal.

What is the impact of not having one?
THE ART OF RECOVERY
Recovery after training and racing allows you to return to a normal physiological and psychological state as rapidly as possible. This is essential so that future performance and training is not compromised by muscle soreness and/or fatigue. Unfortunately, most people don’t have a pre-or post-exercise recovery plan, or understand the different forms of recovery that should be built into daily, weekly and the distinct phases of training. This could be the single biggest factor to not achieving your goals and performing at your best or better!
What Happens During Recovery?

Come and find out about nutrition for running with Sam Downton
My goal is to help you improve your overall health, supporting you to enjoy a happier, healthier life. As a runner myself I know the importance of eating to create energy, maintain endurance and to repair tired aching muscles. Eating to your own individuality is the main focus of my therapy for you and this may mean using diagnostic tools such as blood type, medical history and food intolerances to help and support you to be a better runner.

Sweat Studios – Don’t let injury put you out of the game
How much time do you really spend stretching at the end of your run? The likelihood is not a lot. As a passionate runner, often with a training goal, the preference to spend the spare time you have doing the thing you love is understandable but tight, un-supple muscles and weak, unstable joints can often lead to injury.
At Sweat, we’ve helped many Redway Runners rehabilitate injuries and get back to running. But prevention is always better than cure. Regular classes with us won’t only help you stay injury-free, they’ll improve your running performance through greater flexibility, balance, core control and improved breathing and focus.
At Sweat we provide yoga with a difference. There’s no gongs, chanting or incense. We focus on yoga for exercise and our hot yoga sessions are perfect for tight, inflexible bodies. Our classes are popular with active, sporty people and we train professional athletes including the MK Dons and Northampton Saints. So come along and see us and find out how Sweat yoga could help you.
