Martin Lawrence received the award as part of the inaugural People’s Awards, which were held to celebrate the 50th year of Milton Keynes.

The awards celebrate and honour the outstanding achievements of community champions who willingly help others and make Milton Keynes a great place to be.

In accepting his award, Martin praised the work of fellow event organisers, and said it capped off the club’s development.

He said: “A lot of work goes on behind the scenes to make sure everything [Redway Runners] do works well, so much of it could not happen without all the people that help in so many ways.

“This is an award for the whole club. It is just an amazing story of how the club has developed and grown over the years.”

As part of the awards, BBC Three Counties made a short video that was shown at the awards. It can be viewed here: http://youtu.be/jY-PT8A4-wU
