WE ALWAYS NEED VOLUNTEERS!
Please join our team on 30 April to 1 May 2023 and make this prestigious running event a massive success for Milton Keynes!
If you are not planning on running, the next best thing to do is to volunteer! Without your support and effort, the MK Marathon would not be possible. There are many different and fun opportunities for you to be part of Milton Keynes’ best running race.
What are the benefits of being involved?
All volunteers will receive a briefing, an official t-shirt, a commemorative pin badge, and a packed lunch.
You will also enjoy a sense of satisfaction that you are helping us stage the best event possible for Milton Keynes, as well as the gratitude of thousands of participants!

Recognising our dedicated volunteer groups
The Redway Runners, with over 2,500 members, is the biggest running club in Milton Keynes. Established in 2010, the club caters to every level of runner. Organised runs take place every day of the week. Redway Runners have been a major supporter of the MK Marathon from day one. Apart from the many runners that actually take part, great pride is felt by providing the MK Marathon team with hundreds of volunteers from among its members to make sure the day goes well.
When asked why the group continues to volunteer at the MK Marathon, club Chairman Martin Lawrence emphasised that “the event is a great opportunity to connect with other individuals from the Milton Keynes running community.” His advice for other volunteer groups is to “make the most of the opportunity, as giving back in these events can feel as rewarding, if not more so, if you are committed and enthusiastic during volunteer efforts.”
