Next event

The next Keyne-O is on Sunday 11th October at Great Linford.

Organiser's Comments

There was an excellent turn-out in almost perfect running conditions at Campbell Park this morning. We had a good number of newbies as well as several visitors from neighbouring clubs who had never been to MK before let alone Campbell Park. 10 people were awarded medals today having run at all 7 events so far.
I hope my first outing as organiser came up to scratch but I really couldn’t have done it without my band of helpers. A big thank you to Ed, Jaya, Steve, Karen and Alec. A special thanks to Charles for putting out signs and help with taming the tent to getting it back in the bag.
I would like to thank Don for his planning skills as there was some very positive feedback, especially regarding the child friendly nature of the amble.
There is one item of lost property - a small tapestry case containing a pen, a nail file and a comb.

Planner's Comments

I hope everyone enjoyed their courses especially as it was my first go at planning. My key aim was to give plenty of route choice on all courses and to give a full flavour of the park and surrounds (blackberries, foxes, rabbits, sheep and swans were an added bonus). Judging by the feedback I didn't go too far wrong although all credit goes to Steve Hardy who helped me enormously with the courses plus deserves special praise for saving the day by printing out all the courses (after our friendly printer suffered a bereavement).
Thanks also to my teenage son James, who got out of bed on Sunday at silly o'clock to help put out the controls and ensured that we were up and running in good time.
For those serious runners who were complaining about heavy legs from the London City Race on Saturday, spare a thought for Rachel Edwards who not only did the London City Race but completed a triathlon this morning prior to the Keyne-O. Best excuse of the day was thankfully not about control positioning or the map but "I would have been faster but I stopped to pick blackberries...."
Thanks to all for making the hard effort worthwhile.
