BMI Saxopn Clinic sponsor the Milton Keynes Marathon Relay event 2016

The MK Marathon Relay is sponsored by BMI The Saxon Clinic.


The Marathon Relay runs alongside the Milton Keynes Marathon event, pitting teams of four runners (adults only 17+) against each other, each competitor running a leg of approximately 10k.

The relay event is open to businesses, charities, clubs or even groups of friends and is characterised by a strong element of friendly competition as teams compete to be seen as the fittest or the fastest. These titles represent not only an enviable PR title, but also bragging rights that last for a full year.

This opportunity does not come around every day and is something not to be missed. Teams either take it in turns to drive or nominate a team driver. Full instructions and maps will be sent to each team before race day. Each team is expected to move around the course in one vehicle either with a dedicated team driver or by sharing the driving.

Race Day: Sunday 3rd May 2020

Start time: With the full Marathon @ 10:00am


  • 1st all Male Team (based on gun time)
  • 1st all Female Team (based on gun time)

  • Awards will take place on the main stage at 2:10 pm
