Great day at the Up & Running MK Winter half on Sunday with loads from the club taking part and also many helping around the course. We even came away with three club runners picking up awards (picture below) for Caroline Beechey, Gavin Lucas and Maurice O’Connell – well done
We also manned the water station at mile 9 (picture below) at Tear Drop Lakes organised by Diane, which included Paul the Christmas Tree.
Well done to all that took part and helped on the day.
Lots of Redway Runner photos at:
For Mel Jordan the half was her first and she said
‘As you were aware this was my first Half Marathon. Last night I was apprehensive as I didn’t know what to expect, this morning I felt sick and I could of cried when I finished. The kindness, encouragement and support that I received from other Redway Runners has been absolutely brilliant from those running and those helping. I couldn’t have done it without them today. Thank you all 🙂‘ Mel
From Rob with a message via Facebook
‘Just wanted to say thank you to one of your runners for being my pacer. I don’t think she realised she was one but with the green top she was easy to spot and was going at a good pace for me. I was the one singing in a red top
David the race director of the event said
‘Diane and the gang did a great job! I was there this morning to clear up and it was all spick and span.’
James a runner at the event
‘I said to my fellow running son, we will do this one again! Can you believe locals loaded up their children who gave out jelly beans en route and in addition to the water stations and gel/jelly/bear give-aways? And I have never seen so many Redway Runner t shirts – they kept me going in the 16-19 zone when I was flagging! Thanks to all.’.
