The Milton Keynes Half Marathon and Festival of Running takes place on Sunday 17th March 2019 starting at our wonderful Xscape city-centre venue and we hope you will come and join us!
The festival consists of a family friendly or super-swift 5k event, our classic 10k distance race, our ever popular half marathon distance race and our 20 miler for those who like to go long.
If youre running the Virgin London Marathon, Brighton Marathon or one of the other big spring marathon races, the longer races are ideal races for you to add to your preparation programme. The courses are mainly flat, fast and well marshalled to ensure you get any assistance you need.
We also have some wonderful experienced pacers running in the half marathon and the 20 mile event to help you achieve your goals. All youve got to do is hang on!
The races start on the central dual-carriageways of Milton Keynes then winds through some beautiful scenery. We hope you will gain plenty of inspiration along the way whatever your race-day goal fun run, stepping stone to full marathon, personal best time or just to finish!
Milton Keynes is conveniently located just 30 minutes from London by train and just off Junction 14 of the M1, 40 minutes from the M25 and Birmingham. The Xscape centre is just 5 minutes from the motorway and has plenty of parking spaces available.
