About the event

The Milton Keynes Winter Half Marathon returns for 2022 on the 11th December. 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 head out along the Grand Union Canal and return via the linear parks that run throughout Milton Keynes. This is an event loved by many, sign up soon to avoid disappointment! After listening to your feedback, we realise not everybody wants a T-shirt, so this year we have made a T-shirt optional! We’re really keen to lower our wastage and make sure we’re doing as much as we can to look after the environment, so moving forward we will only be buying T-shirts for those that want one! If you would like an awesome Finisher’s T-shirt to commemorate this event, simply choose your preferred T-shirt size when you enter the event. Alternatively, you can purchase your T-Shirt anytime before the 10th November once the design has been released. You do not have to purchase the T-Shirt when you enter.
