Welcome to a new race experience

Introducing the 2020 Rightmove MK Marathon Reimagined, an exciting new race experience.

2020 Rightmove MK Marathon Reimagined is not a virtual race. This is an EA measured and certified race course taking in the beautiful lakes and scenery of Milton Keynes. This self-supported race features advanced timing technology with built-in turn-by-turn voice navigation for round-the-clock service in a two week period from 6 September.

The course is accessible whenever you are ready for your race — any time of the day or night between 6 – 19 September 2020. No weather concerns, no early bus rides, no long waits at the start line… no hassle.

Run your race when it works best for you.

Everyone runs the same course, with real timing and results. Whether you are trying to set your PB or looking for a fresh alternative to a virtual race then why not run the 2020 Rightmove MK Marathon Reimagined.

Anyone who had a place in the September event will be ready to take part in the 2020 Rightmove MK Marathon Reimagined event. We will keep you up-to-date as we get closer to September.

We also have a traditional ‘Virtual Race’ option for runners who can not travel to Milton Keynes [ HERE ].
