Race Listing


Things take a turn for the hairy this weekend as the MoRunning series returns to London and Bristol. Both cities will host a 10k and 5k with participants showing off a range of weird and wonderful moustaches. On a less hirsute note, there will be plenty of ups and Downs at the A20 Paths ’n’ Downs Half Marathon in Maidstone. The undulating course crosses the Kent Downs, providing spectacular views to reward runners’ efforts. Check out race results and upcoming events on our race listing page.

Don't forget that you can also add your race's details to our event listings by signing up as a race organiser.

Good luck to everyone racing over the coming week!
