2019 will see the introduction of a kids race and 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!
We are very pleased to be again working with the NSPCC this year at the MK Autumn Run. There are many ways to raise money for this fantastic charity such as through a simple donation, buying a NSPCC running vest or through setting up a Just Giving page when entering the event.
The MK Autumn Run 2019 (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.
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 ancient tiny church of St Giles, finishing off running back through the wonderful Emerson Valley linear park.
There will be water-stations at 5km intervals and at the finish and medical support will be available at the race site and along the course.
The only requirements are that you must be a minimum of 15 years of age on the day of the race to enter the 10km and 17 years of age to enter the half marathon and be fit enough to complete the course within 3.5 hours (after which it will be closed).
In addition to an excellent course, we offer ample toilet at the race site, secure baggage drop, chip timing (incorporated in your race number), refreshments throughout the day, pre and post race massage (£5 donation please), warm-up and results service (including certificate). 2019 will see added extras such as a bar serving up all your bitter and bubbly favourites and a band to enjoy when your race is over.
All finishers will receive a medal and we expect to have a service available for this to be engraved with your name and race time (£5).
NSPCC running vests may be purchased upon registration or on the day for £12. All proceeds from the sale of these vests go directly to charity.
