Following the success of the last two years, the date for the third Milton Keynes Marathon has been set for the Bank Holiday Monday of May 5 2014.

Next year’s event will include the MKM Half Marathon option, as well as the ‘Geoffrey Leaver Corporate Relay’ for teams of four, and the ‘Superhero Fun Run’ of 2.6km for runners and walkers of all ages.

Andrew Hully, race director of Milton Keynes Marathon, said next year’s event will be even bigger and better.

“We are hoping to attract a large field including both high achieving athletes and recreational runners,” he said.

“With the launch of the MKM Half Marathon option we are offering something for everyone and hope that more people than ever will decide to train for and enter one of the races, even if they are complete novices to exercise.

“Everyone who finishes a race, whichever event they decide to enter, will benefit from fantastic crowd support around the course, for which Milton Keynes is now becoming famous, and will experience the thrill of the big stadium finish in the state of the art stadium:mk, home of MK Dons FC.”
