Milton Keynes Rocket 5k 2020 update

The award-winning Rightmove MK Rocket 5k is a popular and scenic 5k event that will allow you to take in the beauty of the surrounding area before enjoying an amazing stadium finish.


How do I run for Macmillan?

There are two ways to get yourself signed up for the Milton Keynes Rocket 5k.

Macmillan Charity Place: We would love to have you on the team for the Milton Keynes Rocket 5k. To secure your place, click on the 'Get a place' button. There is no registration fee and we ask for a minimum fundraising pledge of £75.

Get your Own Place: Public entry for the 2021 Milton Keynes Rocket 5k is now open at the official race website. If you secure your own place, there is no minimum fundraising target, we just ask you to raise as much as you can for Macmillan.

What do I get as part of #TeamMacmillan?

Whichever way you choose to join, as part of Team Macmillan, we’ll make sure you have:

  • Our bumper fundraising pack, access to our online training zone and lots of fundraising tips.
  • Your free Team Macmillan technical running vest or t-shirt, plus iron on letters to customise your kit.
  • Regular e-newsletters to support your fundraising and to get you race day ready.
  • Access to the Macmillan charity marquee.
  • And of course... the loudest and most supportive cheerers on the course!

    Most importantly, we will provide you with a reason to put your time into training and fundraising, because you know that your efforts are going towards improving the lives of people living with cancer in the UK today.


    Why be part of the green team?

    We want to use this amazing event to make a difference. We know cancer can affect everything; your body, your relationships, your money, everything. But we are here to help people live life, no matter what. We give them the support they need to hold on to who they are and what’s important.

    But we can’t do it without you. Join Team Macmillan for the Milton Keynes Rocket 5k and we will treat you like the superhero you are from the moment you sign up through to when you cross the finish line. Life with cancer is still a life. Join Team Macmillan and help people live it.

    The minimum age for this event is 13 years old.
