The Milton Keynes Winter Half Marathon 2020

12th and 13th December 2020

The Milton Keynes Winter Half Marathon returns again on the 12th and 13th December 2020 for a beautiful, scenic, single lap, traffic-free anti-clockwise route around the city of Milton Keynes. You will need to pinch yourself while running that you are actually in a city as you run along the Grand Union Canal and return via the linear parks that run throughout Milton Keynes.

Race Information

Due to extremely popular demand the MK Winter Half will now take place the weekend of the 12th and 13th of December to allow for more entries whilst remaining COVID-19 safe. This means there will be one Winter Half Marathon on Saturday and one Winter Half Marathon on Sunday.

Registration for the event on Sunday 13th December is sold out, entries will only be admitted to Saturday 12th December. The price and rewards for both events will be the same.

Charity Partner – Willen Hospice

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.

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.”

Volunteer & Race for Free
