Redway Runners – Marathon Success


Marathon season is upon us and Redway Runners have been participating in many events around the globe.  In recent weeks Paris, Rotterdam, Manchester, Brighton, Boston (USA) and London have seen strong Redway Runner performances.  Most impressively in the last month Jennifer Sangster has recorded a marathon personal best in Manchester, Brighton and then London (3.07.49), coming 182nd overall lady.   Kassia Gardner, Julie Martin and Geoff New took part in both the Boston (USA) and London marathons in a 6 day period with Julie and Kassia both getting PB times in Boston and London.  Maurice O’Connell also took part in Boston.  42 Redway Runners ran the London Marathon.  All performed well with special mention to Jamie Farmer who came an amazing 114th overall in 2.32.58.  Finally Darren Klein became the first Redway Runner “Zero-to-Hero” programme graduate to complete the London Marathon.  The programme has taken 17 runners from beginner to marathon running in less than a year.  The other members will be graduating at the MK Marathon on 2 May.  Good luck to them and all other Redway Runners at our home event.
