The MoRun events proudly support Movember, the only charity tackling men's health on a global scale, year round.
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.

Yes; experience was good. Access to photos needs to be better. I am still struggling to access these on Facebook...Cardiff albums are available but not Manchester. Alos, not all runners would have a Facebook account.
