MOK Run 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 usually sell out fast.

The race has grown in popularity due to its picturesque location,fantastic astmosphere as well as the post-race celebratons of Danish Pastries and Ceilidh dancing.

Both races start together at the War Memorial, esplanade, Campbeltown. The 10k race is around 3 sides of scenic Campbeltown Loch,and is mainly flat and attracts runners far and wide to gain a lucrative PB. However we take pride that we encourage people of all fitness levels and ages to try out this achievable goal with many power walking around the course and many doing it for charity. The half marathon route leaves the town and runs through the rural countryside and includes approx 1 km on the hard sandy beach of Machrihanish/ Westport, taking in spectacular views across the water of Islay, Jura and Gigha islands. This part of the race makes for pictureque photographs and is normally the highlight for any visitor. The final mile of both races is on a slight down gradiant into town, through the centre, main street, where runners are greeted by crowds of locals cheering them to the finish line - encouraging the first to the very last.

Mok Run supports many local causes and charities, raising lots of awareness and funding. 

A special feature of our event is the range of other activities which take place over the weekend, making it more than just a race. This has given our event a great community feel and been popular with locals and runners alike.  Our Junior event which takes place on the Saturday has proven just as popular as the main event, and attracts children and young adults, with places selling out fast. The Junior event has proved hugely successful and enjoyable for all involved, making it a wonderful family weekend.

Our post race ceilidh, supported by the South Kintyre Sports Council, is a real hit for runners and non runners alike and is worth purchasing a ticket for. A kilt is optional if you have one. ;-) The ceildih is open to under 18's if accompanied by an adult. Licensed bar available.

Each year we are given tremendous support from individuals and businesses in our local community. We really aim to make MOK RUN special, a race not to forget. We are famous for our finish line friendliness where our commentator announces all finishers' by name as they cross the line.  Each finishers is rewarded with a very generous goody bag which includes a locally hand made Campbeltown pottery medal, Mok Run t shirt and much more !

We even have our local bakery at hand providing all finishers and helpers/marshals with the well known Mok Run famous Danish pastry , filled sandwich ( various choice of fillings) and hot drink of choice. Gluten free available.
