The Milton Keynes Half Marathon and Festival of Running takes place on Sunday 8th March 2015 starting at our wonderful Xscape city-centre venue. We hope you will come and join us in what will be another fantastic Festival of Running.
If you’re running the Virgin London Marathon or one of the other big spring marathon races, we have the ideal races for you. The courses are mainly flat, fast and well marshaled to ensure you get any assistance you need.
This year we are introducing a brand new event – the MK20 miler. This race is aimed those runners who want a longer test and we hope will help those aiming to run one of the major spring marathons.
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.
ALL events will be chip timed and every runner will receive a finisher’s medal.
