MK Marathon Weekend

Taking on this marathon just a few weeks after Manchester, I was expecting to be running 26.2miles surrounded by concrete and, as many people joked, roundabouts.

In the main, that couldn't be further from the truth. The Milton Keynes marathon is a lovely course through country parks, around lakes, through woodlands and more.

The main thing to mention though is the support, which is absolutely tremendous around the whole course. Many many marathons have good support, but it's usually focussed to a number of areas, and vast parts of a race will have little. Milton Keynes supporters are terrific and cover almost the whole course. It really does provide such a boost - and the bonus finish in the football stadium is terrific too.

Highly recommend and will be back for more in the future.
