Meeting every single one of you and seeing your dedication and effort has been truly inspirational. You guys are a massive reason we have such a great atmosphere at each and every MoRun and we can’t thank you enough.

A Few Extra Special Mentions:
Our Mo Winners - There can only be one winner! Congratulations to all of our MoRun 2017 Champions!
Adam Savoy - Multi MoRunning Champion Adam has completed a huge eight MoRuns! After only taking up running last summer he's absolutely smashed 2017 and puts it down to his love of challenging himself: "If you don't push yourself you might never know what you can achieve. It is a great feeling when you set yourself a challenge and complete it". Good on you Adam!
Matt Shore - Our top Mo fundraiser for 2017, this guy is a true Mo superhero! Matt has raised almost £7k to date and it was a pleasure to meet him in Nottingham. Matt, you're a legend!
Mini Mo’s - A massive shout out to all of our new mini runners - a super well done from everyone here at Fix and high fives to you all! We hope to see you back next year.
Mo’s and Fancy Dress - What an amazing effort you guys put in this year! From caped crusaders to Nuns on the run, Super Mario Brothers to 118 Mums and Daughters, we salute you all!
