Redway Runners memorable weekend

 

What a weekend for members of the Redway Runners!  Hundreds of the Milton Keynes running club members took part in running and multisport events around the UK and overseas with many notable achievements among them.

 

The 100km “Race to the Stones” event included 4 Redway Runners.  Jennifer Sangster was placed 3rd overall lady and 1st over 40 lady in an amazing time of 10 hours and 50 minutes.  Kassia Gardner was placed 6th lady overall in the overnight event with a time of 11 hours and 55 minutes.  Dennis Verhoeven (15.58) and Adam Sharman (16.19) also completed the gruelling event in impressive times.

 

The main event for Redway Runners members was the NSPCC Milton Keynes Half Marathon.  62 club members represented the green shirts in this high profile local event.  There were some notable performances at all levels of ability.  Ben Fairhall was placed 3rd overall in the event with a time of 1.14.48.  Abi Gooch was the first club lady home in a personal best time of 1.36.40.  Personal bests were also recorded by Dawn Blaber (1.49.44), Lindsay O’Kane (1.50.58) and Niam Hani (2.04.34).

 

In keeping with previous years at the NSPCC event, Redway Runners introduce some fun into their participation.  Previous years have seen a band playing around the course and the wearing of green tutus!    This year saw a group of green shirted runners carrying a stretcher with “Sally the Dummy” on board.  Sally (bib number 900), and the group, recorded a time of 2.16.42.  Well done to all who took part.

 

Club members also took part in 2 multisport events.  Nicole Clarke represented Great Britain in her age group for the European Triathlon Championships in Geneva.  Nicole came a credible 23rd.  Sarah King and Jane Ritchie took part in the St. Neots Triathlon.  Sarah, in her first triathlon, was impressively 2nd overall lady and Jane placed 1st in her age group.  Well done ladies!

 

New members of any ability are always welcome at the club.
