It has been a busy time for the RedwayRunners of late, with plenty donning the famous green jerseys of the club.

A team of 24 runners took part in the Cardiff Half Marathon. Aidy Maidment was the first Redway Runner home in 1:26:45, closely followed by Martyn Douglas with a new PB of 1:26:58.

New PB times were also recorded by Paul Newton, Sarah Jane Bird, Chris Amesbury and Jennifer Sangster. Maeve Fox (2.07.43) and Mandy Hockley (2.25.47) ran their first ever half marathons.

Over 25 runners took part in the Bournemouth Marathon Festival. Jamie Farmer was 14th in the Marathon with a time of 2.49.24.

New PB were recorded in the half marathon by Terence Childs, Sarah King, Jonathan Clements, Neil Solanki and by Patryk Galardziak in the 10km event.

Tony Dalglish finished first in his age group at the Tissington Half Marathon and Abi Gooch came sixth lady in the Blenheim Half Marathon.

In multisport events Nicole Clarke finished first lady in the Buckingham Triathlon and the National Duathlon Championships at Oulton Park saw Jane Ritchie win the gold medal in her age group and Kevin Orchard record a personal best time whilst finishing seventh in his age group.

MK parkrun saw a large number of Redway Runner personal bests this week including Genci Pepaj, Andrew Dodds, Simon Baker, Mike King, Helen Whalley, Greg Tappenden, Zaid Alani, Victoria Wells, Jeanne Barby, Jane Hammonds and Theresa Randall.
