Southampton 1.5k, 5k & 10k MoRun routes

**This event has become a virtual challenge. Please contact [email protected] if you have any questions**

This event has been changed to a virtual challenge due to increased restrictions from the government and your MoRun venue. You may not be able to physically come together but you can still run for each other, you can still run as one as MoRunners throughout the month of November, you can still dress up and grow a Mo (or paint one on!) and still continue to support Movember.

This is a stunning course around Southampton Common, through woods and along trails. The undulating route has a mix between paths and trail running, and by the starting hub there is a grassy section. There are other sections which are uneven and muddy but the course is generally suitable for buggy running. There will be marshals all around the course, as well as kilometre markers.

Laps:

  • 5k: 1 Lap
  • 10K: 2 Laps

Get ready Southampton to MoRun around the stunning Common! Course details: The run route is a mix of path and trail running with some grass sections at the start where our hub is located - undulating - dog friendly - ok for buggy running but some sections can be bumpy or muddy - The 5k is one lap and the 10k is two laps.

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

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.

Southampton 1.5k, 5k & 10k MoRun reviews

4 out of 5 stars

  • Course
  • Organisation
  • Atmosphere
  • Did the 10k in 2019

    Run over familiar clockwise course of the Southampton Parkrun. All paved but narrow for two way traffic. Southampton Common is also open to dog walkers cyclists etc so runners need courtesy as well as stamina. Two loops for the 10K. Weather just right, a free buff and headband with medal. No cake tho :-) ...and three quid for an Americano was too steep.
