You can use the NUnit runners. Mono ships with some of these (e.g.
nunit-console4) but unfortunately it ships with a really old version.
This might be the version you're already using in which case you can

$ nunit-console4 /path/to/your/tests.dll

If you want to use a newer version you can use nuget to get a newer version

$ mono nuget.exe install -Version 2.6.4 NUnit.Runners
$ mono NUnit.Runners.2.6.4/tools/nunit-console.exe

There's also a GUI NUnit client in the NUnit.Runners package

$ mono NUnit.Runners.2.6.4/tools/nunit.exe

Hope that helps.
