A 'Tache Worn With Panache!
Thousands of MoBros and MoSistas take part in MoRunning's charity events...
The MoRunning season of charity runs is in full swing with races being won by a whisker all over the South region. Last weekend saw events at Bristol, Southampton, Poole and Cardiff.
MoRunning, which started in 2009, is now the largest running event series that supports 'Movember' and men's health issues. With 15 live venues plus a worldwide virtual option, there is bound to be an event where MoBros and MoSistas plus the kids and families can enjoy everything MoRunning is about, namely good fun, plenty of laughs, smiles, high fives and not forgetting the fancy dress and funny moustaches, all whilst achieving personal goals.
The 'tache worn with panache may or may not be fake but the atmosphere is perfectly genuine and the effort is real enough as adults tackle distances from 5K to the half marathon, while the mini MoNippers can enjoy their own 1.5K MoRun.
Cardiff was the busiest venue at the weekend with 1,500 MoRunners participating in Bute Park on Saturday 11 November. The half marathon was won by Mikey Bryant (1:18:04) and Francesca Floris (1:33:12) from 426 finishers.
Poole MoRun was also on Saturday and there were 300 hirsuit MoRunners in pursuit of funds for this wonderful cause. Richard Martin (1:27:37) and Sophie Potts (1:39:41) led the way in the half marathon in Upton Country Park.
The Common was the venue for Southampton's MoRun on Sunday 12 November, where 350 showed off their facial hair, and the longest race was led by William Bryan (1:10:07) – easily the fastest half marathon runner of the weekend – and W50 Tallulah Pudney (1:35:58).
Meanwhile, over at Bristol, there was no 13.1-miler on the programme but 600 still took part overall, with more than 400 opting for the 10K that was won by Ollie Bye (37:44) and W40 Shan Mansfield (45:19).
Next weekend sees MoRunning events at Liverpool, Newcastle, Manchester and Leeds. MoRunning 2023 series concludes at Edinburgh on 25 November and Glasgow and Milton Keynes on 26 November.
