MK Marathon Relay

Marathon Relay event is part of the MK Marathon Weekend


The Marathon Relay occurs on the same day as the Milton Keynes Marathon. It pits teams of four runners (adults only 17+) against each other, each competitor running a leg of approximately 10km.

The relay event is open to businesses, charities, clubs, or even groups of friends and is characterised by a strong element of friendly competition. Teams compete to be seen as the fittest or the fastest. These titles represent an enviable PR title and bragging rights that last a year.

This opportunity does not come around every day and should not be missed. The team captain will need to collect the race bibs on the morning of the race.

Team changes can be made online until midnight on the 21st of April. Please email us if you need us to cancel a team member so you can recruit someone else. You can then report any further team changes to the Relay HQ on race day. Team members can run in any order, but the team bibs must be used in sequences A, B, C, and D.

They will need to create a password and give it to the other team members so they can register under “Relay Team Entrant”. Team Captains should notify us of any team changes before the 21st of April. Email us with details of the runner pulling out, and we will cancel their place so another runner can enter. If you enter multiple teams, each team will need a different Team Captain and unique email address.

Milton Keynes is blessed with tremendous natural beauty and a world-class system of cycle paths known as redways. We do our best to take advantage of those factors to give our runners a course that is scenic, interesting, inspiring, fun to run, fast, and different from other marathons.
