MoRunning is back in Edinburgh this November and here's to coming together to celebrate everything MoRunning is about - family, friends, being united, supporting incredible causes and being part of one of the greatest running events that takes place in so many locations throughout the month of November. We can all be part of MoRunning whether you enter the 5k MoRun, 10k MoRun, get the kids running the 1.5km Mini MoRun, or if you just join our virtual MoRun. Good fun, lots of laughs, loads of smiles and not forgetting the fancy dress and funny moustaches!

Secure your entry for you, your family and your friends. Places will be limited so ensure you sign up early! Just remember as a MoRunner we will support you all the way to the finish line so here's to welcoming you to our MoRunning family.

Kit List

This is a fancy dress event, with special prizes for the best costume, so don't forget to dress up! It is especially encouraged to draw on or wear a fake moustache (unless you've grown one already, that is). You will receive your free MoRunning Headband in your race pack, so make sure to put it on before the race.

Please make sure that your Bib race number is fully visible on the outside.

Am I allowed to wear headphones?

Headphones are allowed, but you must make sure that you are aware of your surroundings and are able to hear instructions from marshals and fellow runners.

Icon
Spectators

This is a great family event, with lots of silly fancy dress and groovy music, so it will be great fun to come and watch. You're more than welcome to come along and cheer your friends and family around the course. There's also a strong charitable focus, so the more support the better.

Can I volunteer or marshal at the event?

Do I need to fundraise for the Movember Foundation?

Fundraising is not compulsory, but anything you can raise would make a big difference. When you enter, you have the option of making a donation. You can fundraise for any charity of your choice.

  • Did the 10K in 2019

    It was my very first time doing anything like this and I felt the event was very well organised and easy to navigate around where you had to go etc. The course was a good run with some lovely bits of scenery. I will 100% be back next year to do it all again and try beat my PB.

    Did the 10K in 2019

    I struggled on the ascent on the second lap. Need to get fitter lol.

    It wasn't half cold, could have done with a shorter time between registration and the race itself.

    Highlight was seeing the Mini Mo event. Encouraging start to hopefully healthy lives.

  • Did the 10K in 2018

    Race was great, really good fun, good atmosphere. My sister in law wasnt able to get parked dispite us reading there was parking available. But this wasnt a major issue.
  • Did the 10K in 2018

    Race was tight to begin with as the number of runners going in to the first corner slowed things down a bit. That apart really challenging second lap heading back up the shoulder of the hill.
