We’re blessed with a tremendous amount of natural beauty in Milton Keynes, and we’re also lucky to have 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.

We are working on a new flatter and more scenic route for 2023.

My first time running the MK Marathon and it was an absolutely fantastic event from start to finish from the organisation, ease of parking, accessibility, baggage, toilets, beautiful route, amazing stadium finish, fab medal, T-shirt, and countless help from volunteers. My favourite marathon by far. I will definitely be back, cannot fault this race, perfect in so many ways. Thank you MK Marathon Weekend!

An excellent event that was brilliantly organised.

The family had plenty to do while they waited for me to plod over the finish line.

Cant wait to book next year.

This is one of my favourite marathons out there, it offers a unique course compared to your standard road marathon and seems to get better, year on year. It’s a lot of fun, and if you haven’t done it yet, you really should!

Doing a marathon is quite stressful in itself, but Milton Keynes was a great event – the fantastic organisation, ease of getting there, and quick, simple registration process on arrival took the stress out of this element so that I could focus my energies on running! I had a fantastic day – thank you.

The Rightmove Milton Keynes marathon is a lovely course through country parks, around lakes, through woodlands, and more.
The main thing to mention though is the support, which is absolutely tremendous around the whole course. Milton Keynes supporters are terrific and cover almost the whole course. It really does provide such a boost – and the bonus finish in the football stadium is terrific too. Highly recommend
