Probably the best last race of the year, the MK Winter Half Marathon is our flagship event. First introduced in 2014, the race begins at the Willen Lake Showground, taking runners along the Grand Union Canal and then back to the venue via the linear parks that run through Milton Keynes.
A brilliant event to finish off the year – join nearly 3000 people and celebrate in style!
Please note that the athlete information pack will be emailed out 2 weeks prior to the event.

Willen Hospice is the official charity partner of the MK Winter Half Marathon 2020. Big Cow Sports are proud to partner with a charity that makes such a difference to people with life-limiting illnesses and their families. Please consider helping us raise vital funds either by making a donation or running in aid of Willen Hospice and raising sponsorship.
“We are proud to be one of the best-loved charities in Milton Keynes, because of the difference we make for people with life-limiting illnesses and at the end of their lives. While we can’t change the diagnosis, we can improve the quality of life of our patients as they face and come to terms with their illness. We help our patients to live as well as they possibly can, we listen to their needs and we also support their families. Dedicated teams provide a range of support including treatment at the Hospice or in patient’s homes; bereavement support for family members; and therapeutic services. We also work closely with GPs, hospitals, community nursing staff and social workers to make sure that our specialist care is practical, informed and supportive at all levels.”
Our vision is to always be there to care. To provide that care free of charge, we rely on the generosity of the local community in helping raise £4.7 million every year – that’s £9 every minute of the day.”
