Amazing marathon!

Having missed out on the London Marathon ballot numerous times, the MK marathon became my first. I cannot say enough good things about it. Great atmosphere and support from the marshals and public, well organised drink stations, lovely route and got to run with some friendly fellow runners. Anyone considering a first marathon or any marathon should do MK!

Fun event!

Whilst not one of the top tier marathons in the country, this is a really well organised event, with a reasonable field size and strength and a wonderful route through some parks and round the lakes of MK.

Crowds are a little sparse in places, but the little pockets you get make some decent noise with a little encouragement! The course is mainly flat with a few small hills, so good chance of a fast time. Stadium finish was something different!

Really enjoyed it. A fun event!
