Route information

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

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.
