A half marathon to be proud to race

Milton Keynes Marathon

This was my second year of running the half marathon. Though this year I have run London Marathon a week before. I was worried I was not going to be able to complete aftet London, but I surprised myself.

PB Potential and a stadium finish!

Milton Keynes Marathon

Wow what a race! Starting outside the MK Dons stadium, right next to KFC, the route takes up in to the centre of Milton Keynes, before heading back down to the older parts and through the redway network. My only issue with the course was a narrow twisty section through a park near the end. After this section, it's a short blast back to the stadium before the best bit.... THE STADIUM FINISH!!! Running round the edge of the pitch with the crowd cheering is incredible! You can't not up the pace for a sprint finish! I crossed the line in 3:42:49, taking 28 minutes off of my previous PB. This is s highly recommended race from me

Great Firsst Marathon

This was a great first marathon. Excellent support and very friendly runners. Nothing compares to the overwhelming feeling of seeing the stadium at the end and doing the "victory" lap around the field.

Unexpected

First time I have run the MK marathon, wasn't expecting much as I don't consider MK to be the most picturesque town. Well I stand corrected, you do run 5/6 miles around the town, but after that you venture into the surrounding villages and parks outside the city and they are stunning.

Running amongst the cows!!

A fast and enjoyable race which was supported very well by local peope. A varied terrain which kept your mind and body occupied. A good finish in the stadium and a well stocked goody bag given to you at the end.

Continues to be a great event

I have completed the MK Marathon four times now and it is consistently very well run and organsied with a varied and interesting route.  I would highly recommend this race for people who are not after a totally flat Marathon.  Starting and finishing at the staduim is fantastic as the facilites are great with no need for portaloos and associated long queues :-D

Good event

My only critisism is that for people who were collecting numbers on the day, the queue was far too long.  I imagine some people got to the start late or didn't have time for their pre race routines.  Number collection (if you entered past the time to get your number posted) wasn't offered this time.

More stressed about parking than the run

This is the 4th time run the marathon and each time parking is a nightmare. Each time I've paid for VIP parking and this year park and walk.  What a waste of money, hardly any direction signs, no vechile registration , no marshalls, any one could park there!

MK Half Marathon

I've done the marathon once and the half marathon twice and this is a well organised stress free event. Always regular well stocked feed stations, friendly marshalls and volunteers and knowing the stadium finish is coming ... well that should keep you going. The atmosphere is fantastic.
