Recognising our dedicated volunteer groups
THE REDWAY RUNNERS – MILTON KEYNES
The Redway Runners, with over 2,500 members, is the biggest running club in Milton Keynes. Established in 2010, the club caters to every level of runner. Organised runs take place every day of the week. Redway Runners have been a major supporter of the MK Marathon from day one. Apart from the many runners that actually take part, great pride is felt by providing the MK Marathon team with hundreds of volunteers from among its members to make sure the day goes well.
When asked why the group continues to volunteer at the MK Marathon, club Chairman Martin Lawrence emphasised that “the event is a great opportunity to connect with other individuals from the Milton Keynes running community.” His advice for other volunteer groups is to “make the most of the opportunity, as giving back in these events can feel as rewarding, if not more so, if you are committed and enthusiastic during volunteer efforts.”
