MK Autumn Run
The MK Autumn Run is returning to once again support our main charity, the NSPCC. Having built up an excellent reputation over the last 21 years for its high standards of organisation, facilities, and marshalling, this event has become key in the Milton Keynes sporting calendar, attracting both experienced and first-time runners from around the UK. Half Marathon and 10k events both follow a single lap route.
And calling all budding athletes to take on the new 1k and 2k runs, also in aid of the NSPCC and open to ages 4 and above. Parents can run alongside their little ones.

Well organised, great views, headphones forbidden
Plenty of nice views including lake and parks, mostly running on nicely maintained paths and tracks.
The only negative was the 'no headphones' rule was a little excessive, with people being threaten with disqualification if they are caught listening to music on a run for more than an hour. I understand the health and safety concerns with crossing roads, but most peoples situation awareness is pretty good if they are confident enough to listen to something to help pass the time while running.
Apart from that the music and food at the start/finish line was great and the tech tshirt is nice and bright for the winter months.
