MoRunning Race Weekend Report 5th & 6th November 2016

Posted on by MoRunning

So the MoRuns in Swinley Forest, Dublin, Leeds, Belfast and Newcastle are over for another year and what a fantastic weekend it was! All of our event teams have reported back to MoRunning HQ and we have loved hearing all the stories. We know there was rain and sunshine and we can’t wait to see photos of you all getting stuck in, including someone who we believe may have been head first at the Muddy! Big high fives to all of you! As you know, we work with F/Stop Photography so watch out for the photo emails! We have had a sneaky peek and love what we are seeing!

Thanks to all those of you who have raised a heap of cash for the Movember Foundation, as after all this is why we MoRun – the  money helps make massive strides for mens health and you should all feel really proud.

We wanted to highlight and congratulate the first 3 place holders at each event as well as some of the most noticeable fancy dress wearers!


We spotted a cave woman, and the ‘mo-wearing baby-wearing’ gentleman made us chuckle! We loved the cape wearing dog too – super!
