Overview

Our flagship event is a scenic, single lap, traffic free 13.1 miles anti-clockwise route around the city of Milton Keynes. You will need to pinch yourself while running that you are actually in the city as you run along the Grand Union Canal and return via the linear parks that run throughout Milton Keynes.

The route will be starting at Willen Lake, with a start time of 10am.

All athletes in starting groups based on your estimated finish time. Please note, you must start in your correct wave.

Results Base and Big Cow Events are proudly supporting our Charity Partner, the NSPCC, with The MK Winter Half Marathon 2020.

Please consider helping us raise vital funds needed to help protect children in Milton Keynes and nationally. You can do this through a simple donation, purchasing an NSPCC running vest or setting up a Just Giving page through our registration page for this event.
