Redway Runners of Milton Keynes have been voted ‘Club of the Year’ by England Athletics East Region at a recent awards ceremony during the all England Junior Athletics Championships held at Bedford International Athletic Stadium on Sunday 27th August 2017. The award means that they now go forward to the national awards to be held later in the year.
 
Committee member Steve Scott was on hand to accept the award on behalf of Redway Runners and was joined by fellow member Simon Richards and Ian Stevens who was responsible for nominating the club for this award.
 
The award was presented by England Athletics Council Member, Rebecca Gilbertson.
 
Steve Scott said “It was an enormous privilege to receive this award on behalf of Redway Runners. The award is well deserved as the club has grown into one of the leading running clubs in the country. Starting from just 5 members, 7 years ago, it now boasts membership of over 1,250. All the praise must go to our chairman Martin Lawrence, who has worked tirelessly to build the club into what we are today.”
 
News of the award was announced immediately afterwards to those gathered at the club annual BBQ.
 
Part of the reason that Redway Runners received this prestigious award was for the many events it organises, including many this year to help celebrate the 50 year anniversary of Milton Keynes. The next big event being the MK50 Treasure Hunt being held on Sunday 1st October 2017 at Willen Lakes.
 
Steve Scott who is the club event co-ordinator said ” We are pleased to open this event to the people of Milton Keynes.  There will be three Treasure Hunts, one over a distance of a Half Marathon following the Millennium Circular Route, and another over 10 kms following a grid map, both whilst looking for hidden letters which form a word synonymous to Milton Keynes. These two events are suitable to all and can be completed by running, jogging or walking in a team of three. Everyone will receive a special MK50 bespoke medal. The third event is a FREE Treasure Hunt for children and families which involves walking around Willen South Lake, reading information regarding 50 years of Milton Keynes and answering a quiz sheet. Every child will be able to select a special gift from the Treasure Chest. These events will be great fun for all and not to be missed”
 
The club will be commencing the next beginners courses at the beginning of  next month, where over 300 have already signed up.
