You have the option to protect your booking with ACTIVE refund for a small fee. Receive a full refund of the purchase price and processing fee should you be unable to attend the event due to a specified reason, such as:

  • Injury or illness
  • Vehicle breakdown or theft
  • Adverse weather resulting in travel warnings
  • Work relocation

Please note that cover is void if the event is canceled or postponed. You will be able to select this option at the checkout stage and download the latest coverage details. Registration protection is provided by Active.com, and you should contact them directly about your policy and how to claim. This insurance policy is not offered or sold by the MK Marathon and is an agreement between yourself and Active.com.

ENTRY RULES


You must not give your running number to anyone else. Amongst other potential problems, doing so may cause problems with runner identification for the event medical services, in the case of an accident or injury. Any attempt to do so will result in immediate disqualification of the individual(s) concerned and removal from the event.
