MK Marathon Weekend consist of 5 races- MK Marathon, MK Half Marathon, Marathon Relay, Rocket 5K and Superhero Fun Run.
Consistently ranked in the top 10 UK marathons, an AIMS/IAAF Grade A certified race, with BARR Gold accreditation for outstanding race management and an amazing stadiumMK finish.
MK Half Marathon:
The MK Half Marathon starts from one of our fabulous Milton Keynes landmarks, the stadiumMK. The first five miles are on wide roads and tree lined boulevards. The half marathon route then continues through picturesque Woughton-on-the-Green and Woolstone parishes.
At mile seven, the half marathon route bears right into the lush Ouzel Valley following the beautiful, meandering River Ouzel onto first Walton Lake, one of the richest spots in Milton Keynes to enjoy wildlife, and then onto the very picturesque Caldecotte Lake. The route then heads west to Ashland with its wondeful wetlands, before following Saxon Street back for a victory lap of the stadiumMK football pitch and that magical stadium finish!
The BMI Saxon Clinic Marathon Relay runs alongside the Milton Keynes Marathon event, pitting teams of four runners (adults only 17+) against each other, each competitor running a leg of 6.2, 6.9, 6.9 and 6.2 miles.
The relay event is open to businesses, charities, clubs or even groups of friends and is characterised by a strong element of friendly competition as teams compete to be seen as the fittest or the fastest. These titles represent not only an enviable PR title, but also bragging rights that last for a full year.
This opportunity does not come around every day and is something not to be missed. Teams either take it in turns to drive or nominate a team driver. Full instructions and maps will be sent to each team before race day. Each team is expected to move around the course in one vehicle either with a dedicated team driver or by sharing the driving.
MK Rocket 5K:
A fun and fast 5k race with proven PB potential running from CMK to the stadium with extra special medal. Dont miss this opportunity to experience the buzz of marathon weekend without the extra mileage!
Superhero Fun Run:
The Superhero Fun Run is a fantastic event for runners (or walkers!) of all ages and abilities. Experience what being a superhero is all about as you cross the stadium finish line cheered by thousands of admiring spectators. We sold out in 2016 with an amazing 1200 Superheroes so dont leave it too late to enter. This is a very colourful and fun addition to the MK Marathon event for the whole family. Whos joining us?
