Calling all runners … Prepare to don your moustache this November when MoRunning comes back to cities throughout the UK and Ireland.
In 2014, over 15,000 MoBros and MoSistas participated in MoRunning events throughout the country and this year promises to be even better and bigger than before.
Being organized for seven years in a row, MoRunning raises awareness of men’s health through fun and friendly running events. Women and men of all ages, MoRunners, are invited to sign up and to wear a moustache, whether drawn on, stuck on, or intentionally grown for Movember! Fancy dress is very popular, with prizes for the best dressed MoRunner, and teams are also invited to participate.
MoRunners are invited to raise sponsorship to help support Movember and fundraise for men’s health. In 2014, MoRunners raised thousands for Movember and they want to raise even more in 2015.
About 20,000 MoRunners are expected to join the events in seventeen locations throughout the UK and Ireland, including three new to this year: Birmingham, Brighton and Belfast. Each location has limited entries to ensure a super friendly, pleasant and fun experience, so early registration is very recommended to secure a place.
Each runner receives a top class MoMedal – bigger and better than 2014, a MoRunning headband, drinks and snacks at the event, photos to download plus additional goodies from event partners. There’s also a Yellow Winners Jersey for 1st finishers, including Champion medal and free entry to 2016, and Legend and Superhero medals for best fancy dress and legends of MoRunning.
MoRunners can choose between 5K, 10K or 10-mile off-road runs which are held on weekends throughout November.
Dave Krangel, MoRunning Race Director, says that everyone is welcome. “There’s a MoRunning event to suit every runner, from 5K and 10K MoRuns to the 10-mile Muddy MoRun for those who enjoy getting mucky. We’re looking forward to welcoming thousands of MoRunners and raising funds for Movember.”
Being a MoRunner means you are part of something bigger than yourself. You’re part of a team, a family, a community. So whether there’s a MoBro with a funny moustache, a MoSista who’s painted one on, or someone dressed as a superhero, give them a smile, shake their hand, give them a high five and remember we are all in it together. Run fast, run hard, have fun and enjoy being part of this special event.
