2019 marks 10 years of MoRunning, the event where MoBros and MoSistas don their moustaches to raise money for the Movember Foundation, the charity committed to raising funds for and awareness of men’s health.
This weekend the finale of the 2019 MoRunning race series came to London and over 850 runners of all ages and abilities descended on Greenwich Park for a morning filled with fast times and moustache shaped medals in aid of the Movember Foundation.
Runners dressed as Mario and Luigi, 118 and strongmen donned their trainers to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the MoRunning race series.
MoRunning is a series of fun 1.5km, 5km and 10km runs taking place at 24 different locations across the UK and Ireland during November in aid of the Movember Foundation, who raise vital funds and awareness around men’s health.
This year MoRunning is celebrating its 10th anniversary, during which time the running series has raised over a staggering £1,000,000. This year, runners were once again encouraged to join the fun in costumes and fancy dress, including the famed moustache (real or fake, male and female), to continue to raise money for a great cause.
In London Matthew Cartwright triumphed in the men’s 5km race in 17:52 with David Worden taking victory in the men’s 10km distance in 37:10 and Ellie Ball and Madeleine Cooper Brennan winning the women’s 5 and 10k races in 21:58 and 43:29 respectively*
David Krangel at MoRunning, said: “We’re delighted to have had so many people supporting MoRunning in London and are sharing and supporting the message of the importance of men’s health.”
