Ready to run for Movember?

Moustache season gets underway next week with the start of the Movember – the annual charity campaign which raises awareness of Men’s Health – and in particular prostate cancer.

aThis year sees the first ever Scottish Mo Running 5K event will take place on Sunday November 20 (10.30am).

Hundreds of Mo’ Brothers and Mo’ Sistas are expected to take part.

Mo Running Race Director, Dave Krangel explains: “Mo Running fever has spread like facial hair, boldly growing at an unexpected pace! 2010 saw the official launch of Mo Running with runs taking place in London, Milton Keynes and Dublin and all the way down under in Melbourne, Australia.

“Now it’s Scotland’s chance to dress up and go with Mo’. We’re excited to be bringing the Mo Running event north of the border and expect hundreds of Mo’ Brothers and Mo’ Sistas pounding the pavements of Glasgow Green in aid of men’s health.

“As the Mo Running community is building we want you to join us, get in the Mo Running spirit, spread the word and start calling yourself a Mo Runner. It’s all about fun, getting together with friends, family and work colleagues whilst supporting a great cause.”
