Following the success of our 2018 and 2019 events, starting Monday 3rd August 2020 – for Redway Runners members only – spend your summer evenings exploring the beautiful lakes of Milton Keynes, gradually increasing the distances to cover a Marathon distance in 5 days.
This year due to Covid 19, group running sizes will be limited according to restrictions in place at the time. However you are able to run virtually on your own or in socially distanced groups as per the regulations from 3rd August.
You can download GPX files for the routes below*, or feel free to run your own routes but remember, to achieve the 5 Lakes challenge in the 5 days from 3rd August, you must run a total marathon distance and visit at least 5 lakes.
