Hi all,

I am currently looking for a running partner in Milton Keynes. I go running on my own quite a bit and would be nice to find someone to go running with. I am not  a faster runner and I am doing about 5K at the moment but I can do 10K but only in colder weather. I did a 10K movember race last November.

Please get in touch

Hi Tara.  I don't live in MK but I'm a 2nd claim member of an excellent MK club called DLRR (David Lloyd Redway Runners).  I joined them as they are a lovely bunch of people and very sociable/ encouraging - we recently jogged at the back of the MK half playing musical instruments.  They cater really well for all sorts of runners and you'd meet a lot of people who are similar to you.  They are also very cheap to join.

Have you tried the MK parkrun? It's a free 5k run every Saturday at Willen Lake. You'd also meet a lot of people there, if you don't find anyone on here. 

Hope you find some running company soon.

Thanks for your messages. I am thinking of joining a running club and it would be nice to meet new people as well and running on my own sometimes can be a struggle. I did drop a message to Lakeside runners last week but I havent had a reply back. I have had a look at redwayrunners website and it does look interesting. Do you know how much it is to sign up?

I have never done parkrun, whats it like? Is it any good? I went out with sweatshop running club last week but I was disappointed. No one spoke to me and I found it hard to get motivated.
