The Milton Keynes Marathon & Half Marathon will take place on Bank Holiday Monday 4 May 2015. With 4,500 acres of woodlands, lakesides, parks and landscaped areas within the city boundary, Milton Keynes is the ideal venue for a Green City Marathon.
The course is a single lap, traffic free route on closed roads and cycle paths or “redways” as they are known locally. It combines the tree lined City Centre boulevards with many miles of leafy surrounding suburbs, lake & canal side redways. Crowd support in the town is fantastic & plenty of groups out on the more rural sections as well.
The course is gently undulating with a short hill at mile 24 and has PB potential, but you have to work hard to earn it. Stadium finish is great, you will feel like a hero covering the last mile as you head in towards the finish line and you will receive a cracking medal as well.
Everyone will benefit from fantastic crowd support around the course, for which Milton Keynes is now becoming famous. The MKM Half Marathon shares the same tree lined city boulevards and superb stadium finish as the full marathon event.
