About Us

We are a small and friendly running club in Milton Keynes and we promote running for fun and fitness in a safe and supportive environment.

We meet at Willen Lake (beside the Premier Inn), Milton Keynes on Tuesdays and Thursday evenings:

Improvers at 6.15pm (minimum 5k) & advanced at 7.30pm (minimum 10K)

If you are new to running you may want to take part in our 10-week programme to help you progress from hardly running or not running before to being able to run 5k –ย please contact us for beginners course dates.

Achieve Goals

Whatever your running goal, we will help you to achieve it, whether you are new to running and just want to get fitter or whether you are aiming for a specific goal such as Race for Life events, a 10k, half or full marathon. Some of our members have also taken part in multiple triathlon, and duathlon events all the way up to Ironman level.

We pride ourselves on being welcoming to new members whatever your goal. There will always be someone in the club to support and help you, so you will never be left to struggle on your own and our Coaching Team will give you every help and assistance to enable you to achieve your ambition.

We have members who have been inspired by the encouragement and support of friends within the Club and have gone on to succeed in taking part in all distances of running that they had never thought they would be capable of achieving.


We take part in relay and off road events like the Thunder Run, Squeaky Bone Relay and Greensands Ridge and arrange off road runs in Bow Brickhill Woods, Salcey Forest, along local canal paths and across the countryside including some night runs.


In addition to the fact that we are a long standing established Club, there are many benefits of joining MKLR not just keeping fit and running with like-minded people. We have qualified Leaders and Coaches taking the sessions. The Club is affiliated to UK Athletics (UKA);
