It was ready, steady, go for the start of MK50 celebrations thanks to local running club, Redway Runners. A flash mob of 130 runners could be seen in a number of locations on the first Bank Holiday Monday of the year to celebrate the start of MK’s 50th birthday.

The ‘Icons Run’ saw them cover over 13 miles of Milton Keynes from Willen Lake to the train station and back again visiting fifty MK iconic places along the way. These included the Peace Pagoda, Campbell Park and the Point. They even managed to surprise shoppers by running through The Centre:MK!

To finish off the run, and bringing things right back up to date, they performed the mannequin challenge whilst running up Campbell Park Hill – quite a task for 130 runners to keep still for so long!

Redway Runners founder, Martin Lawrence said, “It was great to have so many of our club members join us for this fun event to start our MK50 celebrations and it’s fair to say everyone had a brilliant time. It was a beautiful sunny day, and certainly a great way to blow away the festive cobwebs and start the New Year.”

The Redway Runners have a number of events planned in 2017 to celebrate MK50, and you can find out more on their website – www.redwayrunners.com or by following them on Facebook.
