The Redway Runners were out in force for the London Marathon. 59 Redway Runners took part in what turned out to be one of the hottest London Marathon race days on record, completing the 26.2 mile course in temperatures of up to 24 degrees Celsius. Despite the heat personal records were set by many runners on the flat course. Notable achievements included a 03:21:00 finish by Jen Sangster, 03:32:47 PB by Katie Tucker and a 03:49:55 finish by Marice O’Connell in the 65-69 age group.

 

Martin Lawrence, club chairman, completed the marathon in celebration of his 60th birthday and was fortunate enough to run part of the course with his daughter Sarah Lawrence. Martin said “support around the course was fantastic, especially seeing so many fellow Redway Runners taking the time to travel down to London. The general feeling between the runners was that it was brutal running conditions and fantastic that all Redway Runners finished on such a challenging day”.

 

Many runners described the day as one of the hardest races they had run. Katie Tucker commented “I saw many runners suffer and even collapse. It was the hardest race I’ve ever experienced… A race to remember though!”

 

Redway Runners is an inclusive running club based in Milton Keynes, with over 1000 members and sessions every day of the week. The club runs the Zero to Hero programme yearly and encourages both new runners and potential mentors alike to get involved. For more information about the club, visit www.redwayrunners.com.
