The 5k and 10k Whitstable & Herne Bay 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!

Arrival and Registration
It is very important we run to time so please ensure you arrive nice and early to collect your race pack. Make sure you either print off your race number confirmation or have this to display on your mobile device when you arrive at registration. At registration you will receive your race number and chip, safety pins and dedicated headband.
Registration will be set by race number so please make sure you queue in the correct section. You will be using our Chip on Bib race numbers and it is important these are displayed on your outer garment to ensure 1) We can see your race number when running 2) To help with the timing system to read your time and 3) To help our photographers identify you!
Will be located in our event hub.
This is located next to our registration tents. Please note space is extremely limited so travel as lightly as possible. Bag storage is under gazebos which are manned. However, we do not recommend bringing anything of great value to the event.
We will have some funky tunes played and our team will get you warmed up and ready to run.
Fancy Dress Competition
The fancy dress competition will take place at 915am. If you want to be in the Fancy dress showdown make sure you line up between the fancy dress flags by 915am. There will also be spot prizes for best dressed Mini MoRunners when they cross the finish line.
Please note 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. 10am. You will receive both your gun time and net time - your net time is your actual run 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.
After the Event
Everyone will receive a very cool MoRunning medal and there are also a few special Mo Medals up for grabs for best dressed, fastest Mo, legends of MoRunning and many more.
You will be able to check out your instant race results and these also go live to our website and will show within your profile page as well.
Water available for all runners.
Sweets will also be available at the finish line.
