Milton Keynes Half Marathon & Festival of Running

Milton Keynes Half Marathon & Festival of Running takes place on Sunday 15 March 2020 starting at our wonderful Xscape city-centre venue. We hope you'll come and join us!

The festival consists of a family friendly or super-swift 5k event, classic 10k distance race, ever popular half marathon and 20 mile race for those who like to go long.

If you’re running Virgin London Marathon, Brighton Marathon or one of the other big spring marathon races, the longer races are ideal tests to add to your preparation programme. The courses are mainly flat, fast and well marshaled to ensure you get any assistance you need.

We also have experienced pacers running in the half marathon and the 20 mile event to help you achieve your goals. All you’ve got to do is hang on!

The races start on the central dual-carriageways of Milton Keynes then wind through some beautiful scenery. We hope you will gain plenty of inspiration along the way whatever your race-day goal – fun run, stepping stone to full marathon, personal best time or just to finish!

Milton Keynes is accessible and the Xscape centre is just 5 minutes from the motorway and has plenty of parking spaces available.

All events will be chip timed and every runner will receive a finisher’s medal.
