Runners round the world are in training for Kintyre’s largest mass participation athletic event.

With only nine weeks to go before MOKRUN weekend on May 25 and 26, runners young and mature, both at home in Campbeltown and abroad, are in training for the 10k and half marathon.

As in previous years, the junior will race on the Saturday with the adult 10k and half marathon races on the Sunday.

The traditional ceilidh for all ages will complete the proceedings on the Sunday evening.  All the race places are full, but a few tickets are still available for the ceilidh.
