MK Festival of Running - Sunday 15 March 2020

The Milton Keynes Festival of Running is on Sunday 15 March with around 4000 runners competing in races over 5km, 10km, Half Marathon and 20 miles. All start and finish outside the XScape Building in Central Milton Keynes. The Club is committed to providing over 100 helpers for this event to marshal, staff the feeding stations, help with baggage, set up and take down the course. In return the club receives over £15k from the profits. All the money raised this year will be used to replace the flood lights at the track with a new LED system to last the next 25 years.

We need volunteer coordinators in each of the big groups - road runners, sprinters, endurance, throwers and young athletes - each committed to recruiting at least 20 volunteers to work for 2-5 hours in return for a t-shirt and a lunch-pack. The volunteer coordinators receive free membership in recognition of the work they do. If you can help, talk to your coach first, and contact Mick Bromilow. Please put the date in your diary because we need a really big turn-out on the day to support the club and its runners.

 

Saturday 8 February: Chiltern League at Campbell Park

The last round of the 2019/20 Chiltern Cross Country League will be held at Campbell Park, Milton Keynes on Saturday 8 February, with the first race (for U11 Girls) starting at 11:30am. After four rounds Marshall Milton Keynes holds a narrow overall lead over Bedford and County, but to win the overall title again, for the seventeenth time in 23 years, we need another massive turnout in all ten of the races.

The event is free for all MMK club members. You just turn up with the number you used in previous CCCL races, or collect a number from the team managers if this is your first time, and run! It also a great social occasion with an opportunity to talk to other runners, parents and friends, and to support the MMK runners. If you can help with marshalling the course (for even part of the day), please contact Jackson Ryan.

Note the nonstandard timetable for this event, with the Senior Men starting at 1:30pm, the U17 Men at 2:30pm and the Senior Women at 2:35pm. There are maps of the courses here.
