No Tears at Daytona

We held our second Redway Runners Daytona race on Saturday, 19 December 2020 – event details click here

It was all a bit touch and go in the week leading up to the race if it would go ahead with one of the key helpers waiting test results, and the impacts of Milton Keynes moving to tier 3, including if the venue would be open, but we managed to work round the obstacles and hold the event, did mean a number of people had to drop out last minute, with many donating the entry fee to the club charity or running virtually, thank you for your support

Anyway a great morning of running with the new Sprint kicking of first with the runners going all out for a single lap of the course, this was followed by the 2 hour event with runners completing as many laps as they could in the 2 hours, then it was the original Daytona 5000, 5 laps of the track and slightly over 5K, finally we had the Fun run for the youngsters and a chance to beat our green Santa.

Thanks to the Mayor of Milton Keynes for coming along as our official race starter and we even persuaded him to take part in running the Daytona 5000 – well done Andrew

Our very own, pre- corporate takeover, Green Santa popped up all over the place keeping everyone entertained

Putting on an event like this does not happen without a lot of work behind the scenes and a big thank you to all the helpers from the club and to the staff at Daytona for making us welcome

We had 119 people take part in the three main races plus great to see the youngsters take part in the Fun Run

The 5K was won by Jack Rose in 17 minutes 54 seconds and first lady was Nikki Elliot in 22 minutes 54 seconds

Daytona 2 (hours) had 23 laps completed by Claire Rulton and Gareth Warren

The Sprint (one lap) quickest time was Andrew Emerson with 3 minutes 30 seconds.

A great response to out appeal for tins for the MK Foodbank, thank you all, we did this with the support of MKFM and you can listen to the interview on MKFM with David Rose and the Mayor of MK, at:
