Past Event Photos
The 5k and 10k Manchester MoRun and Mini MoRun
Grow it, flow it and sculpt the most aerodynamic mo you can, and get limber in some 70’s funky track threads. Mo Sista’s (ladies who support their men, or just love Mo’s) we need you too! You can draw on a Mo if you like, or just get suited up in some fancy dress and jog it out to change the face of men’s health. We look forward to seeing you for lots of fun and laughs along the way, and remember there will be prizes for craziest costume, fastest Mo, and more!
The event hub will be based near the Town Hall Colonnade which is just below the lake near the bottom of the park.

Arrival and Registration
Registration will be open from 8am and will close at 8.45am so please arrive nice and early.
It is very important we run to time so please ensure you arrive nice and early and we advise arriving by 815am/830am latest. Please note that for this event we will be sending out your race packs in the post due to the new start time. Please note anyone registering after Thursday the 8th November will need to collect these on the day and we recommend arriving by 815am.

This is located next to our registration tents. Please note space is extremely limited so travel as lightly as possible. Bag storgae is under gazebos which are manned. However, we do not recommend brining anything of great value to the event.
We will have some funky tunes played and we will have a fun warm at 845am
Fancy Dress Competition
The fancy dress competition will take place for the adults at 830am. If you want to be in the Fancy dress showdown make sure you line up between the fancy dress flags by 830am latest. There will also be spot prizes for best dressed Mini MoRunners when they cross the finish line.
Please note for the 5k and 10k MoRun placings are based on Gun time. So if you are in it to win it aim to get to the front for the start. Gun time is from when the race starts i.e. 9am. You will receive both your gun time and net time - your net time is your actual 10k time from when you cross the starting mats to when you cross the finish line.
Please take care when running around the course as this is public land and local residents will be out and about. Please always stay on the left unless otherwise guided. There will be marshals around the course to support and encourage you.
