Milton Keynes Winter Half Marathon route

The route kicks off at Willen Lake at 10AM and runners follow an anti-clockwise path around the city of Milton Keynes. The race avoids traffic and keeps runners distracted with parks and the Grand Union Canal before returning back to the finish line via a series of parks throughout Milton Keynes.

This event is relatively flat and the perfect place for both experienced runners and beginner runners looking to challenge themselves with their first half marathon.

The Milton Keynes Winter Half operates in support of the Willen Hospice.

    Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    Missed the whole thing as it was published on here as a 12pm start when in fact a 10am start.

    Thanks

    (Gave it 5 stars as not the fault of the organisers)

  • Did the event in 2018

    The race is on narrow park paths, get yourself near the front at the start or youll be stuck in a bottle neck! Be prepared for lots of twists and turns, quite a technical course with a few lumps and bumps thrown in for good measure!
  • Did the event in 2018

    Starting pens by predicted finish time - was awfully crowded for the first two miles
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2016

    Decent run out, pb potential in this race. I used this as a fun run with my friends and would do it again only to get a quick time.
  • Did the Half Marathon in 2017

    Decent winter race, on a varied but enjoyable course.
