The Milton Keynes Winter Half Marathon 2022

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.

Charity Partners

Samuel’s Charity is a local charity to Milton Keynes. The charity was started by Samuel, who in 2013 was admitted to St George's hospital in South London and diagnosed with a rare cancer, Precursor T-Cell Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. This particular type had not been seen before which meant the treatment for it wasn’t black and white, and there was trial and error in the type of treatment he got.

On Wednesday 22nd January 2014 Samuel lost his fight. He was 9 years old. Samuel started his charity to help really sick kids and their families get through what is most likely the worst time in their lives, to make their time more bearable and to bring some relief, fun and hope to their day. The charity helps any sick children, whether in hospital or not.

Willen Hospice is the only adult care Hospice in Milton Keynes.

“None of what we do is possible without the support of the volunteers, donors and event participants that actually raise the money. There are too many to name, but their help is generous, selfless and makes a huge difference to so many children. Our gratitude and thanks is with each and every one of you.”

“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.”

Registered charity number 270194.
