In northern Norway, WF routes include the following or similar, depending on days - but mine was (flown on a Dash 8-100 LN-WIR):
VDS Vadsoe 24 mi
BJF Batsfjord 37 mi
BVG Berlevag 24 mi
MEH Mehamn 29 mi
HFT Hammerfest 98 mi
TOS Tromsoe 131 mi
Total. 343 mi
nonstop distance KKN - TOS : 264 mi
WN does this also.
On one of my last flights, the a/c was doing BNA-BHM-DAL-SAT-SAN, IIRC (I only flew BNA-BHM), but ititneraries with 2 stops (no changes of a/c) are quite commonly bookable on WN.

They're not exactly milk runs but I have done BOM-IDR-BHO and DEL-BOM-CJB before.
The DEL-BOM-CJB flight was interesting because it was one A320 with the same flight number, and through pax were not allowed off the plane. But they still cleaned the cabin, so ground staff were literally vacuuming around my feet. I was one of three or four pax on the plane, which just made it even more awkward.

The only 'milk run' I have done (albeit spaced over a day) was YYC-DFW-MIA-BGI.
YYC-DFW was done in one day, and DFW-MIA-BGI was done the next.
I prefer milk runs as opposed to "straight line" flights, as it gives me an opportunity to (if given) to get off the plane, get something to eat, stretch my legs, and if allowed by the TSA/CATSA, get some new pictures for my airplane photo albums.

I did a couple in Norway a few years ago; LYR-TOS-BOO-TRD-OSL all on the same 737-500. Admitedly it was broken down into three separate flights, I was just unlucky enough to have the same aircraft the whole way.
One I can think of in the UK is JER-GCI-PLH-BRS-MAN operated every other day by Air Southwest. I don't think you can book JER-MAN, but you can certainly book it JER-BRS with two stops, pretty impressive as it's only 152 miles between the two.
