Our flagship event is a scenic, single lap, traffic free 13.1 miles anti-clockwise route around the city of Milton Keynes.
Sunday 10th December 2017 (Location)
You will need to pinch yourself while running that you are actually in the city as you run along the Grand Union Canal and return via the linear parks that run throughout Milton Keynes. The route will have mile markers so you will know how you are doing and will be fully chip timed with results being streamed on the Results Base website which will also include three split points.
NEW EVENT VENUE FOR 2017 BELOW – 99% of the Winter Half course is unchanged, we have moved the Start, Finish and event village to the new event space at Willen Lake. The new area benefits from a recent refurb, a large event space and improved parking facilities.
First Aid cover will be provided around the course and there are ample toilets at the event HQ. Please note that there are no dedicated changing facilities provided.
Following the floods which occurred on course in 2016 we have a planned an alternative route which avoids this section in the event of adverse weather in future years.
