MOKRUN was established 2006 in Campbeltown, located close to the beautiful Mull of Kintyre. It has been voted as the UK’s top race in Runner's World magazine multiple times and places sell out in hours.

The race has grown in popularity due to its picturesque location, fantastic atmosphere as well as the post-race celebrations of Danish pastries and ceilidh dancing!

The 10k race is around three sides of scenic Campbeltown Loch, and is mainly very flat and attracts runners from far and wide to gain a lucrative ‘Personal Best’ but we are very proud that we encourage people of all fitness levels and ages to try out this achievable goal with many power walking around the course, a lot for charity. The half-marathon route leaves the town and runs through the rural countryside and includes around a kilometre on the hard sandy beach of Westport which makes for spectacular photographs and is normally the highlight for any visitor. The final mile of both races is on a slight down gradient into the town and through the main street where runners are greeted by crowds of locals cheering them to the finish line – encouraging the first and the very last.

We support many local causes and charities, raising lots of awareness and funding. Many of our participants raise sponsorship for their own charity causes too.

A special feature of our event is the range of other activities which take place over the weekend, making it much more than just a race. This has given our event a great community feel and been popular with runners and locals alike. We have introduced MOKRUN Junior Races on the Saturday before the adult races which attract young children to take part. These have proved hugely successful and enjoyable for all involved making it a wonderful, family weekend that all can join in with. Other events over the weekend is our legendary pasta party and post race ceilidh.
Each year we are given tremendous support from the local community – individuals and businesses. We aim to make MOKRUN special and are famous for our finish line friendliness including our local councillor commentator who announces all finishers’ names as they cross the line as well as the incredibly generous goody bags which include a locally handmade pottery medal, technical tshirts, energy drinks, chocolate bars and much more! We even have the local bakery at hand with freshly made pastries, sandwiches and hot drinks for all finishers and helpers which always goes down a treat.
