The 5k and 10k Cardiff MoRun and Mini MoRun

Grow it, flow it and sculpt the most aerodynamic mo you can, and get limber in some 70’s funky track threads. Mo Sista’s (ladies who support their men, or just love Mo’s) we need you too! You can draw on a Mo if you like, or just get suited up in some fancy dress and jog it out to change the face of 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!

Registration will be open from 8.15am and will close at 9.30am so please arrive nice and early. 

All Mini MoRunners must be back across the finish line by 10.10am ahead of the 5k and the 10k event at 10.10am. 

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. There will be different sections for collecting 5k and 10k and Mini MoRun race packs. 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! 

Toilets

Will be located in our event hub.

Bag Storage

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. 

Warm Up

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 for the adults at 945am once the Mini MoRun is underway. If you want to be in the Fancy dress showdown make sure you line up between the fancy dress flags by 940am latest. There will also be spot prizes for best dressed Mini MoRunners when they cross the finish line.

Results

Please note for the 5k and 10k MoRun 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. 10.10am. You will receive both your gun time and net time - your net time is your actual 10k 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 that are up for grabs! And some great prizes as well for best dressed, fastest Mo 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.

On the confirmation email there will be a link to create your online profile. Please keep an eye on your inbox and in your profile in the lead up to your event as we will send regular newsletters with race day info, race number details and everything you need to know for race day. Your race number will be listed on your profile the week of the event. If you entered via Find a Race or Lets Do This you will receive a confirmation email from them and then another one from us when your entry has been transferred over to our system.

Will I receive race information in the lead up to my event?

Yes we send out email updates prior to your event and you can view all event details, news and offers by logging in to your user profile.

Will I be chipped timed?

Yes all our events (unless otherwise stated) are chip timed!! Your race chip will be on your race number bib which you receive on race day and which must be secured to your outer garment to ensure the chip works correctly.

What happens if I don't receive my race email?

If you don’t receive your race emails it may be because the wrong email address was inputted or the race email went in to your junk mail so please do check your junk mail carefully!

Can I cancel/transfer/get a refund if I can't take part?

The Fix Events cancellation/refund policy is: Up to 14 days before the event you can cancel and receive a 60% refund on your entry fees. After this point we can not offer any refunds. Up to 7 days before the event you can (i) transfer to another event or (ii) receive the equivalent amount of voucher points onto your profile for use against a future Fix event. Up to event day you can (i) transfer your place to someone else you may know who wishes to take part or (ii) do the event virtually at any time and receive your medal in the post. To do so you must email info@thefixevents.com ahead of event day. Unfortunately we cannot give refunds within 14 days of the event or transfer your entry to another event within 7 days of the event as costs have been incurred for your registration and your entry fee goes towards covering these fees.

Do you have any age restrictions / can children take part?

Absolutely! We typically allow children of all ages to take part in all our events (unless specific information is given for a set event). Please note that children remain the responsibility of their parents/guardian throughout our events. If the parent/guardian is satisfied the child/children can confidently run 5k or 10k unaccompanied they may do so, with a parent/guardian remaining onsite at all times.

What do I get for taking part?

Full race chip timing with instant results at the event, a cool medal, drinks, snacks, trophies or special medal for winners and an all round highly professional and fun event to be part of.

Can I Enter a team?

Absolutely! Get as many friends, family or colleagues together and run as a team. You are not required to run together and each person will receive their own time however it's just fun to run under a team name.

Can I run with a buggy?

Yes this is typically ok for most locations however please check the run route course as some locations can be a mix of path, trail, grass so not always suitable for running with a buggy. Also please try and stay to the left as much as possible to give room for other runners. (this is allowed at running events but not triathlon, please see last faq for more info)

Can I volunteer to marshal at the event?

Absolutely! If you miss out on a place or just want to help out on the day and marshal that would be great. We need as much help as possible to ensure we can give runners the best experience possible and that includes plenty of marshals on the course, helping with registration, bag storage, water stations, handing out medals and general event support. Typical volunteer hours are from 8am until around 12pm and all volunteers will get drinks, snacks and a free entry to any Fix Event!! Please get in touch by sending an email to info@thefixevents.com. We would welcome you to join our team.

Can I walk / do you have a cut off time to complete the event in?

We typically have a cut off time of 1.5 hours to complete the 5k/10k races from when the event starts. 3 hours for half marathons. Walking part of a 5k event is typically fine but the 10k races are mostly for running (with a bit of walking/jogging if necessary!). If doing a virtual run you have the luxury of completing your event anytime, anywhere and for however long throughout the given event period!

Can I run with my dog/are you canicross friendly

Yes, we love too see dogs running with their owners! Please ensure your dog is on a short lead/harness and that you are careful on the course and respect other runners and park users.

Can I wear headphones?

Yes we do allow this but please note it is your responsibility to make sure you can hear what's going on around you when running, including marshals and general public. Please keep the volume at a level whereby you can hear any important announcements that may be made. (this is allowed at running events but not triathlon, please see last faq for more info)

Do I have to fundraise for the charity you are supporting?

You are not required to fundraise but if you choose to that would make a huge difference to the charity, whatever amount you raise. You can fundraise for any charity of your choice.

How do I view my race day photos?

A few teaser photos will be posted on our Facebook page the day or the day after the event: https://www.facebook.com/thefixevents Approx 1 or 2 days post event all photographs will be available to purchase here: www.wildman-media.com You can search by name or race number and purchase individual photos or as a photo bundle containing all of your race images.

When do online entries close/can I register on the day?
