A family friendly 5k for all to enjoy and the best part? 25% of your entry fee will go straight to Willen Hospice! The more the merrier for this race, run with your friends, your dogs, your buggies!

This 5k will kick off Saturday 1st October at 13:00 and you will have 1hr 30 mins to complete the 1-lap course. All finishers will receive a fabulous MK Autumn Run medal with a bespoke Willen Hospice 5k ribbon.

Entries start from just £10, and all ages are welcome!

Feel like getting 13.1 miles under your belt? On Sunday 2 October you can do just that!

This year we’ve introduced a brand new 1 lap course which will be officially measured and UKA affiliated. The race will begin at 09:00 and there is a 6 hour cut off (15:00 finish).

There will be plenty of support around course and a water station at 6 miles for you to refuel!


Prices start from £26 (Non-Affiliated) and £24 (Affiliated).

The (more) serious one. A cash prize for the top 3 male and female runners is up for grabs in this race, so you better lace up those running shoes!

The MK10K will begin at 14:30 on Saturday 1st October and will be UKA affiliated.

What does this mean? Well, anyone is open to take part, but following UKA rules, there can be no dogs, pram/buggies or children below 15 years of age.

The 10K is a two-lap course and will be very well signed and marshalled!

Prices start from £22 (Non-affiliated) and £20 (Affiliated).

This year we’ve decided to introduce a marathon distance to the MK Autumn Run.

All marathon runners will complete 2x laps of the half marathon course.

The race will start at 08:00, with a cut off time of 15:00 (7 hours).

There will be water stations at 6 miles and 18 miles.

Prices start from £34 (Non-Affiliated) and £32 (Affiliated).
