MK Autumn Run 2019

Location: The National Bowl, Milton Keynes | MAP

Entry fee: from £18 | ENTER

The MK Autumn Run (previously the NSPCC Half Marathon) has built an excellent reputation over the last 20 years for its high standards of organisation, facilities, marshalling and has become a key event in the Milton Keynes sporting calendar attracting both experienced and first time runners from a wide area. Runners have always enjoyed this event with ample toilet, secure baggage drop, car parking and chip timing. 

2019 will see the introduction of a kids race and an invitation only 5K alongside the 10K and Half Marathon distances. The event will see an exciting new mix of running, music and food as it brings together athletes of all ages!

Both races will start at 1pm following a one loop run of a new course for the 10km (6.2 miles) and a 2 loop run of the same course for the half marathon (13.1 miles). The course is almost entirely traffic-free on the Redways (cycle paths) and takes in some of the very best sights of Milton Keynes including the National Bowl, Furzton Lake, Howe Park Wood and the tiny, ancient church of St Giles, finishing off running back through the wonderful Emerson Valley linear park.
