Description

This popular half marathon is back on the calendar raising money for the NSPCC

 

The NSPCC Milton Keynes Half Marathon has always been a massively popular event in Buckinghamshire since the first inaugural race in 1996.

This annual community event is a vitally important fundraiser for the NSPCC charity. Our race offers our runners a very fast and flat course that is absolutely ideal for runners looking for a personal best time.

The picturesque route takes runners on a single-lap course that includes the beautiful Grand Union Canal and the scenic Willen Lake. Runners can expect plenty of long, flat stretches throughout the race combined with beautiful views and spectacular scenery.

Why Take Part?

The support from fundraisers like you will make sure that we can continue to be there for children. We can continue to run our vital services such as Childline which has seen an increase of calls from children and young people because of the pandemic. On behalf of the children, young people and families supported by the NSPCC, thank you for running the Milton Keynes Half Marathon and supporting those children who need us to be there for them.
