Round Milton Keynes Relay date: 17th May 2020
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.
Normally run in May it has developed into a "fun" 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.
The next event will take place on the 17th May 2020
Information will be shared via Facebook (search for the Round Milton Keynes Relay page) or via Malcolm Kidby: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Round MK Relay route has recently been revised to take account of new housing and other development in and around Milton Keynes, and the new legs and route descriptions are below, and are available the FB page.
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.
This year we will have 5 legs (rather than the previous 4). The route descriptions attached also have Strava and mapmyrun links.
for those recce running leg 3, please note that the bridge at the Cattle creep/Iron Trunk bridge is still collapased...this will be replaced by the 17th May, but it will mean a short diversion on your recce run.
