Get ready Poole to MoRun around the stunning Upton Country Park!
Most of the course is off road so we recommend wearing trail running shoes as it can get muddy at this time of year! Other than that it's a great run! Course details: Undulating - dog friendly - mix of trail with muddy sections and also paths - 5k is one lap and the 10k is two laps and the half marathon is an initial 1.1k out and back before 4 full laps - course not suitable for wheelchair users - Off road running buggies are ok - 2 sections of the course are road crossings so please take care at these points
On the day
The 1.5k, 5k, 10k and Half Marathon Poole MoRun
MoBro's, MoSista's and MoKids, we need you to get super excited, to get dressed to impress (or just to run fast) MoBro's, grow a Mo if you can and MoSista's and MoKids if you fancy a laugh paint one on!. It really doesn't matter as just by taking part and running with us you will play a huge part in supporting and raising awareness for Men's Health. We look forward to seeing you for lots of fun and laughs along the way, and remember there will be prizes for craziest costume, fastest Mo, and more.
Half Marathon MoRun 9.30am - 5k and 10k MoRun 10am - Mini MoRun 11.30am
Registration will be open from 8am and will close 10 minutes before the start of each race so please arrive nice and early.
Arrival and Registration
It is very important we run to time so please ensure you arrive nice and early to collect your race pack. Make sure you either print off your race number confirmation or have this to display on your mobile device when you arrive at registration. At registration you will receive your race number and chip, safety pins and dedicated headband.
Registration will be set by race number so please make sure you queue in the correct section. You will be using our Chip on Bib race numbers and it is important these are displayed on your outer garment to ensure 1) We can see your race number when running 2) To help with the timing system to read your time and 3) To help our photographers identify you!
Park toilets are avaialbe as you enter the park from the carpark.
This is located next to our registration tents. Please note space is extremely limited so travel as lightly as possible. Bag storage is under gazebos which are manned. However, we do not recommend bringing anything of great value to the event.
We will have some funky tunes played and our team will get you warmed up and ready to run.
Fancy Dress Competition
The fancy dress competition will take place at 915am. If you want to be in the Fancy dress showdown make sure you line up between the fancy dress flags by 915am. There will also be spot prizes for best dressed Mini MoRunners when they cross the finish line.
Please note placings are based on Gun time. So if you are in it to win it aim to get to the front for the start. Gun time is from when the race starts i.e. 10am. You will receive both your gun time and net time - your net time is your actual run time from when you cross the starting mats to when you cross the finish line.
Please take care when running around the course as this is public land and local residents will be out and about. Please always stay on the left unless otherwise guided. There will be marshals around the course to support and encourage you.
After the Event
Everyone will receive a very cool MoRunning medal and there are also a few special Mo Medals up for grabs for best dressed, fastest Mo, legends of MoRunning and many more.
You will be able to check out your instant race results and these also go live to our website and will show within your profile page as well.
Water available for all runners.
Sweets will also be available at the finish line.
