Stay posted for more details coming soon about MoRunning 2017 including earlybird entries, inspirational news, reasons to run and the introduction of our brand new Mini MoRunners race! Keep in touch and spread the word.
To be a MoRunner means you are part of something bigger than yourself! You’re part of a community, a family, a team.
When you step up to that start line at your MoRun, look to your left, look to your right, and remember friends are all around you!
So whether there’s a MoBro with a funny moustache, or maybe a MoSista that’s painted one on, or even someone dressed up as a superhero, give them a smile, shake their hand, give them a high five and just remember we are all in it together. Run hard, run fast, have fun and enjoy being part of something special!
To you the MoRunner, we clap for you, we shout at you, we support you, maybe even laugh at you (all in good humour of course) and we praise you for your commitment to the MoRunning community and the difference you make to supporting such a great cause.

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.
Please note you will collect race chips and race numbers at registration on the morning of the event. Your race number details will be emailed to you. Please also note a full race listing can be found online the week leading up to the event.
Our 5k Newcastle MoRun will start at 1.50pm and our 10k Newcastle MoRun will start at 2pm. Registration will be open from 12.15pm and will close at 1.45pm so please arrive nice and early.
Our event hub is in on the grass section next to the small lake in Exhibition Park. You will see our MoRunning tents here. Registration will be set by race number so please make sure you queue in the correct section. Remember you will collect your race number along with your race chip here. Your race chip is essential to record your time.
This year you will be using our chip on bib race numbers. (The race chip is within the race bib) Please make sure you pin your race number to the front of your running top and make sure this stays on your outer layer when running as we need to be able to see this.
There is very limited parking in and around the park. Please be sure to plan your journey to arrive on time. If possible leave the car at home or park outside the park.
Situated at our event hub.
This is located next to the registration tents. Please note space is extremely limited so travel as lightly as possible.
The 5k is one lap and the 10k is two laps of Exhibition Park. We will start gathering you in to the start area at 1.50pm. We will have some funky tunes played to get you in the MoRunning spirit!
There will be marshals around the course to support and encourage you.
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. 2pm. You will also receive your net time which is your actual run time from when you cross the starting mats.
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.
Everyone will receive a very cool MoRunning medal, a headband and there are also a few trophies that are up for grabs! We will be on the look out at all MoRuns for legends of MoRunning, whether it’s best dressed, best Mo, best effort and more!
You will be able to check out your instant race results.
Drinks and snacks will be available at the finish line.
We are proud to support Men's Health, Movember and related charities. Through your participation we are able to raise awareness and fundraising for these incredible causes, so a huge thank you goes out to you!
The 5k Newcastle MoRun is 1 lap and the 10k Newcastle MoRun is two laps of Exhibition Park. When heading towards the finish 5k runners stay left and 10k runners stay right to turn to head for their second lap. After their second lap 10k runners stay left to head to the finish. Please stay on the left where guided and please be aware of park users and respect all those using this space. Marshals will be around the course to guide and support you! Have fun MoRunners!
