Route information
The MoRun events proudly support Movember, the only charity tackling men's health on a global scale, year round.
Runners will take on 1 lap for the 5k route, and 2 laps for the 10k. Previous event results can be seen hereExternalLink.
Heaton Park, the site of the hugely popular Parklife Music Festival, is a stunning location for MoRun. The undulating course has a mix between path and trail running. Some areas are uneven and muddy, so the route is suitable for buggy runners but not for wheelchair users. Please note that there are 2 road-crossings on the route, so it is important to take due care. There will be marshals and kilometre markings around the route.

I thought the event overall was really good. Great atmosphere and the course was tough but a good challenger. The only thing I would change would be the details given before the race. We got a taxi to the car park post code on the letter inside our packs and it took us to a car park on the other side of the start of the race. From there, it wasn't clear where we should go to get to the start. We got there because another runner had the same problem. Just a bit clearer with the instructions would be helpful next time. Thanks.
