The Round Milton Keynes Relay is an annual event run around the 31 mile Milton Keynes boundary in 4 stages (legs) over various terrains. Normally run in May it has developed into a "fun" event with a prize giving and social gathering after. The RMKR is an event that attracts entries from clubs and groups of athletes in Milton Keynes and the surrounding area. Two trophies are competed for - The Pat Graves Memorial Shield which is awarded to the team with the fastest "age adjusted " time and to the fastest team overall. The entry fee is only £5 per team.
The event is not marshalled or signposted, so runners must use the route descriptions for each leg below and ideally recce the route in advance. Although traditionally run as a relay, some runners have been known to run the entire route solo.
The next event will take place on the 20th May 2018

The Round MK Relay route has recently been revised to take account of new housing and other development in and around Milton Keynes. These changes affect legs 2, 3 and 4.
