Day thrDay 3 trackee and it is the Track mile at Stantonbury track, all of the tourists went off in 6 races during the evening and some exciting battles fought which create a great spectacle, a seventh race took place was then held for those doing just this race, Genci made his first appearance of the week and put in an amazing time of 5 minutes 5 seconds

 

 

 

Day 4 Campbell Park Day four and it is the billed 5 mile hill from Campbell Park, it is about 4.4 miles, the good news is it is twice down hill in Campbell Park from the Beacon, but the bad news is what goes down…… Also along for the race was the club 640 group, good to see them (well briefly at the start).

For the last race runners traditionally run in the converted and well earned Tour tee shirt. Afterwards is the presentation of the awards and we had three awards again for Redway Runners that went to:

  • First Male – Andrew Dodds
  • First Female – Jen Sangster
  • Most improved – Rudi Chaplin

We had 32 Redway Runners completing the full Tour this year, well done to all our winners the presentation is followed by a celebratory drink or two and the post tour buffet supplied this year by our own ‘Eat with Spencer’ and very good it was to.

Well done to all that took part and if you are looking for a challenge an event to look out for in 2018

Finally thanks to Marshals Milton Keynes for a great event and especially Andrew and his team for all the work putting on the event, Andrew said ‘ Hi Redway Runners, can I say a huge thank you for your active participation in this years Tour of MK. This event has now become a MK running event, rather than simply an MMKAC event with a few guest runners. The attendance of Redway Runners was amazing this year, many of you fed back on how much you enjoyed the races (in a weird way) and are looking forward to next years event. My aim is to have a Tour that is full of runners from all of our local clubs, is sociable, fun,inclusive, informal yet still competitive…and I think this has been achieved. Thanks again for your support, well done to everyone that ran and see you next year.’ Andrew
