You will not qualify for the prize money if you are not in these waves. Winners will only be calculated once all elite runners have finished their race. If you wish to run for fun, then please enter any wave from 18:15.
Elite runners may enter at a discounted rate. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your Power of Ten 10km time.
Race packs will be posted out prior to the event, however we will have a registration tent at the venue where you can collect a new race pack should yours not arrive before the day.
There will be staggered starts and athletes will need to choose a starting wave when they register for the event.
Waves will begin from 18:15 (18:00 for Elite athletes).
We ask that athletes wear the appropriate face coverings when collecting their race packs from registration (if it hasn’t arrived in the post) and respect social distance guidelines when around the venue.
If you begin to feel unwell leading up to the event or have any symptoms of COVID-19 we ask that you forfeit your place and do not attend.
If the place you reside is placed in an area with restricted travel, we ask that you do not attend the event and stick to government guidelines. If this is the case please get in touch with us at email@example.com.

Big Cow are happy to be supporting our local charity Willen Hospice with The MK 10k
About Willen Hospice “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.”
