Round MK Relay

2022 Date now confirmed:

Sunday 17th July 2022

Round Milton Keynes Relay date: 17th July 2022

The Round Milton Keynes Relay is an annual event run around a 31 mile Milton Keynes boundary(ish) course in 5 stages (legs) over various terrains.

This is a “fun” and competitive event with a prize giving and social gathering after and attracts entries from clubs and groups of athletes in Milton Keynes and the surrounding area.

This will start and finish at Caldecotte Lake, with 5 stages. The longest leg will be 9 miles, with most of the others being 5/6 miles.

The idea is that people predict their times so that we can have a staggered start and have most teams finishing at the same time.

All teams to have at least one lady.

The entry fee will only be £10 per team….and we’ll have various prizes to include The Pat Graves Memorial Shield which is awarded to the team with the fastest “age adjusted ” time and to the fastest team overall, but also potentially a prize for the closest to predicted time overall, per leg etc etc.

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 (solo entry fee £5)

The next event will take place on the 17th July 2022

Information will be shared via Facebook (search for the Round Milton Keynes Relay page) or via Malcolm Kidby:

Please note that due to the distances involved, and the fact that the course is unmarked, the minimum age to take part is 17 years old.
