The yearly Redway Runners Festival of Running took place this weekend at Caldecotte Lake.
Runners completed up to four events across the weekend: a full marathon followed by a half marathon on Saturday, and a 10km followed by another half marathon on Sunday. With up to 55 runners in each race, just four completed all four near back to back events- Neville Rowles, Stephen Dunham, Rachel Elder and Paul Woodward.
Conditions were very warm and windy. Martin Lawrence, club Chairman commented: ‘It was a fab green turnout for the second year of the Redway Runners Festival of Running with the four of events over the two days. It was very hot weather conditions over the weekend, four runners did all the events -58 miles. For Stephen it was the second time he had done all events making him the only ‘ever present’ person to do all eight of the events”.
Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped organise the aid stations and to Enigma Running for organising the event. Redway Runners is an inclusive running club with sessions running daily across Milton Keynes. For more information about the Redway Runners visit www.redwayrunners.com
