A highlight of the year for runners, this relaxed and social event appeals to all entrants as it welcomes runners of all abilities and ages.
Six races in six days: mixed terrain; short and long distances; Tears and laughter. Each race begins with the nervous warm-up and a scan of the previous days results. It does not matter how good or bad you are, there is always someone a few seconds in front or behind on the aggregated times and positions. Names that you have heard during the year, but not been able to put a face to, are introduced as “the one just behind you!”. The event is suitable for both the fastest and slowest of runners.
The event ends, as normal, with a post race buffet (and opportunity to have few beers with fellow runners and family) and presentation giving at the Sports Pavilion, Woughton on the Green (following the Willen 6 ish race)
Prizes: Everyone who completes the tour receives a technical T-shirt. We will have several prizes available Redway Runners members( First Male / Female and most improved versus last year).
Tour entry fee is £30 for non MMKAC members (£32 if not affiliated to English Athletics).
Easy and fast entry is available on-line via
Happy Running!
