MK Marathon Start

We are so looking forward to welcoming you to our 10th-anniversary event.

Join us on 1st, 2nd, or 3rd May for our contact-free, covid-secure event experience. We know how important races are to every runner and we are doing everything possible to make sure our event will be safe. The benefits of committing to a goal, running with others and that finish line feeling will be all the greater after the challenges we’ve experienced in 2020.

We are so pleased that our plans have been endorsed by the StadiumMK, the MK Council, Public Health, and all other necessary stakeholders.

Our multi-award winning marathon event is consistently ranked in the top 10 UK marathons, an AIMS/IAAF Grade A certified race, with BARR Gold accreditation for outstanding race management and with an amazing stadium finish. A London and Boston marathon qualifying event as well as an England Masters and Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda Age Group World Championships qualifier.

We’re blessed with a tremendous amount of natural beauty in Milton Keynes. We’re also lucky to have a world-class system of cycle paths. We do our best to take advantage of those factors to give our runners a course that’s interesting, inspiring, fun to run, fast, and different from other marathons.
