On Wednesday 20 April the first Redway Runners headed out to Krakow in Poland.
On the Friday a group of 23 headed out as a group to the Auschwitz Museum, a very moving visit and something I think most of us will remember for a long time.
Saturday morning and Krakow has a parkrun, but the usual pancake flat route could not be used, so it was a very hilly but lovely route through the woods, everyone struggled and 28 Redway Runners completed the event from 141 runners, we certainly stood out in the crowd (see separate parkrun update)
Saturday night and a late run for some with the Krakow 10K night run starting in the Market Square at 9.30pm a lovely dark run around the old town centre then out on one side of the river and back the other side, some great running, very busy and congested run for the first section and some dark areas, meant staying upright on the cobbles was a challenge but we all survived. We had 18 Redway Runners taking part from 2,843 finishers

The Sunday’s race was the full marathon but we had no takers for that event
Many memories created and around 33 travelled for the trip, like most Eastern European cities it is rich in history, many of us did similar trips on various days with the tour of the Jewish history, Schindler’s Factory, Boat trips and the old castle area all popular.
As well as a few other runs completed as well as a few drinks and some good food eaten
