Redway Runners – clothing & offer

Club kit is now available with the new club name on it, the order form has been updated and is available on the club site under ‘Shop‘.

The committee has agreed that we will contribute to members who wanted to purchase new club kit and from now to the 31 December 2014, then the club would offer each paid member the opportunity to purchase one club running top, with a reduction of £5 off the normal price, these items are:

  • T-shirt
  • Ladies running tee
  • Vest
  • Children’s tee

To take advantage of this offer please deduct £5 from the total price if ordering one of the items mentioned above – form available here.

Please note that for the moment until the bank account is changed cheques payable to ‘David Lloyd Redway Runners’.


Thanks to all those that took the time to come along to the clubs EGM tonight to vote on the proposal put forward to drop the David Lloyd from the club name.

The vote had a very positive outcome and the plan is now to change the club name to ‘Redway Runners’ from the 1 November 2014.

The committee also presented the design for the new tee shirts and we asked the meeting if they agreed with the design proposed by your committee – this was again accepted by the majority.

Between now and the 1 November it will be a transitional time whilst the changes are made – we will have regular updates – first one on clothing items hopefully tomorrow.

Daytime changes

Just a reminder that some changes are happening to daytime runs over the next few weeks:

New Step Up group
This is a new run we are launching with Tim Miles on Monday 6 October, meet at 10.00 at David Lloyd reception

Tuesday Morning club run
From October this run moves forward one hour to start at 10.00 at David Lloyd reception from Tuesday 7 October

New Beginners group
A new Daytime beginners group with Portia starts Monday 29 September at 10.00 from David Lloyd reception.

Wednesday Morning club run
Stays the same but after piloting loop backs on these runs these will now be regularly a feature of the run going forward.
Also on the Wednesday 1 October club run we will be joined by FitMK for a special club run with a difference

As always any feedback on these or any other runs to your run lead or to Martin

Beginners Group

Beginners group week 4 tonight at 6.00pm. Could all helpers who have a head torch please bring them. It would be good to show the group some different types.

Green Mile

This Saturday after parkrun we are planning the green mile again – a timed mile for all club members on the last mile of parkrun.
We are meeting at the café at 10am and the mile starts at 10:15am (from the start point!).

We had about 40 doing it last time – who is going to come and see how they get on this time?
If you haven’t come along yet, do give it a try – its a fun way to log and track your improvement or just nice to know what you can run a mile in, or even a fun way to race your mates

We need a few helpers with timing for us to go ahead – so anyone able to help please can you let me know – you can be away by 10:30am – Thanks.

Green Mile

This evening instead of intervals we are doing the Green Mile.

We are meeting at the barriers at 7pm and will do some warming up before running the last mile of parkrun at about 7:30pm. This is a timed event and your time will be recorded in the clubs results and published soon after…

This is open to everyone of all abilities and is good for fun but also to be able to compare improvement over a shorter distance than parkrun.

Both the step up group and social run will still be on as normal but anybody from these groups is welcome to come and give it a try – the more the merrier!

Tuesday morning run is changing

From October the Tuesday morning club run is starting one hour earlier, so at 10.00am (instead of 11.00) so the first run at 10.00 will be on the 7 October.
This run is about 9 minute mile pace and lasts between one hour and one hour and fifteen minutes the group meet in reception at David Lloyd.

New Day Time Step Up Group – Mondays

Good news – we are launching a new Daytime step up group – yippee!

It will be on Mondays mornings meeting at David Lloyd reception at 10.00, it will be about a 40 minute run with loop backs at an easier pace, so you can run at the pace that suit you, it will led by Tim Miles and it starts on the 6 October 2014 and run through to the end of the year when we will review.

UKA Fee increase

For information – we have had confirmation from UKA that they are increasing the prices they charge from next year – so for those who add UKA to membership it will be £12 (currently £10). This will be for membership for 2014/2015 more on link below (club fee, currently £5 will be agreed and confirmed by the committee later in the year) – but main part is:
As a result of the findings the Board of England Athletics has taken the decision to:

Set the athlete registration fee at £12 for the 2015/16 Affiliation Year (which starts 1 April 2015).

Set the club affiliation fee for 2015/16, at £100 per club.
