MK Gallery has signed up as a charity partner for Milton Keynes Marathon and Half Marathon Weekend 2017.
Consistently ranked in the top 10 UK marathons, Milton Keynes Marathon is the perfect event for first-time marathon runners thanks to its fast and flat course. Runners pass local landmarks on the green and scenic 13.1 and 26.2 mile routes. We have places available for runners who would like to fundraise for us.
One participant who has signed up to run for MK Gallery is marketeer, Kate Mooney, who states: “Growing up with an interest in creative pursuits was not the easiest in Milton Keynes. As a new town it lacked easily accessible culture, but at the age of 16 I was introduced to MK Gallery via their youth outreach programme Lost & Found. It is no exaggeration to say that it opened up a whole world to me, giving me the chance to have a hand in planning music events and even our own exhibition.
I will be running the MK half marathon in support of the gallery because I believe it is vital that they have the funding to continue opening their doors to young people and bringing interesting and exciting culture to a town, that at times, sorely needs it.”
This will be Kate’s first marathon and we wish her the best of luck!
We have complimentary places on offer to runners and ask that they fundraise a minimum of £100 for MK Gallery.
