Race Routes

Scenic Willen Lake

We have designed scenic new race routes with minimum road crossings for a safer experience. All race routes start near the Splash ‘N’ Play water park at Willen Lake. Off Newlands roundabout, V10 Brickhill Street, Willen Lake, Milton Keynes, MK15 0DS.

These self-supported races feature advanced timing technology with built-in turn-by-turn voice navigation for round-the-clock service in a two week period from 6 September.

NORTH BAY CAR PARK: This car park operates an Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system, and payment must be made prior to exiting the car park (NOT ON ARRIVAL). You can pay by card at the machines. For instructions and the Terms and Conditions of Parking please view the signs which are located next to each pay station.

  • PUBLIC TOILETS will be available near the start/finish between 10 am and 4:30 pm. At The Caldecotte Arms pub at approximately Mile 8 and 21 on the half/marathon route. If you leave the route then you must join the route again at exactly the same location or risk disqualification.
  • GPX ROUTE FILES can be downloaded here.
  • SIGNAGE will be put up around the course as a navigational aid.
  • HYDRATION can be carried, stashed, or you can arrange to meet friends/family en route.
  • ONE4SIX CAFE is located near the start/finish and is open 9 am – 5 pm Mon-Fri and 9 am – 4 pm Sat-Sun.

Race results will be published by England Athletics but will NOT be uploaded to athlete profiles or used for any rankings/handicap scoring purposes, or as an England Masters qualifier. Results from the 2020 Milton Keynes Marathon Reimagined will be eligible to use to apply for Good for Age qualification for the 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon. Full details of the Good for Age qualification and application process for 2021 will be published on the Virgin Money London Marathon website by 31 August 2020. The Reimagined race is also a qualifying event for the Abbott World Marathon Majors Wanda Age Group World Championships (Age Group World Rankings points will be based on a runner’s age on September 6, 2020).
