Running Newport Pagnell

We are pleased to announce that we are starting a number of Redway Runners runs from Body Limits in Newport Pagnell from the week commencing 20 January 2020, these are:

 

Beginners Group

This will be on a Tuesday evening at 6pm starting on the 21 January 2020, meeting at Body Limits, this is a 10 week course and at the end of it you will complete the Milton Keynes free 5K parkrun on Saturday 28 March 2020 with Martin and Vikki.

The course is free but you just need to be a member, but membership is only £5 for the year to 31 March 2021

For all the details of the course and how to book a place click here

 

Step Up run

A new run on Monday evenings at 6pm from Body Limits with Emma and Vikki starting on 20 January 2020. Step Up runs are Redway Runners easier paced runs and over a shorter distance, they are aimed at runners with a pace of 10 minute miles and over and usually about 45 minutes but leave an hour free for prep and cool down time.

If you are not a Redway Runners member you are welcome to come and try our runs for two weeks and if you like then join

Body Limits are at: 99 Wolverton Rd, Newport Pagnell MK16 8HX (no parking at Body Limits but plenty of parking at Station Road car park, across from the fire station)

Sunday running

As it is a new year, we are expecting some big January numbers again this year, the main club run will be from the MK Dons, behind McDonalds during January (we will do different routes each week) we are also having an extra club one hour run from different location each week as well. These runs are ideal for people wanting to increase distance for a marathon or half. Sunday run locations click here

We also have a Step up run as well this is based at runners who want a shorter easier run of 45 minutes and a short walk is acceptable (although it does offer an extra 30 minutes at the end) – if you are attending this run and you are often running at the front then it is time to move up to the club run, that way making it a better run for most of the other runners, and better for the run lead to manage

For the club run, we just ask that you can run for the full 1 hour option and for 80% of the full length of the run, especially as the length of the runs increase (we plan them to extend by 10 minutes each week roughly).

During the run, please run like you are on a motorway, keep to the left and overtake on the right, during the loop backs keep left as lots of foot traffic about, please do not run more than two abreast and always be polite to all using the redways, we do not own them, let’s make sure everyone, runners and others out enjoys the great outdoors.

If you are coming to the main club run tomorrow for the first time look out for the yellow hi vis heroes and they will capture some info if you have not joined and help with any questions

More than anything else enjoy your run, let’s start the ‘Class of 2020’ and most importantly stay for coffee afterwards and a chat (other drinks available)
