The Milton Keynes MoRun is back, inviting people of all ages and abilities to sport their moustaches and run for charity in Campbell Park on Sunday, November 26.

Following the success of last year’s MoRun, the event is set to be bigger and hairier than ever, with organisers raising the number of possible entries to 1,000.

Milton Keynes MoRunners can choose from a 5km or 10km route, and every participant is encouraged to wear a moustache, whether it is stuck on, drawn on, or grown especially for Movember.

Costumes are encouraged, with prizes for fancy dress up for grabs. Everyone who enters will also receive a unique moustache medal, MoRunning headband and a full race chip timing.

As a non-competitive run open to all ages and abilities, the event is a chance to get together with friends and family to support a great cause.

“We’re delighted to return to Milton Keynes for the fourth year running, and are looking forward to welcoming families, friends and teams to get their mos on and join us for the run in Campbell Park,” said Dave Krangel, Milton Keynes MoRun race director.

“The Milton Keynes MoRun is extremely popular and places are expected to fill quickly, so I’d advise runners to enter early to avoid disappointment.”

MoRunners are encouraged to collect sponsorship for Movember, a charity which aims to raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer research.

With 11 MoRuns taking place across the UK and Ireland during Movember, the charity is hoping to raise over £400,000 this year.

So whether you are an experienced runner or you just fancy frolicking along the route in costume, the MoRun promises to be an enjoyable fund-raising event.

Entries cost £16 for the 5km and £22 for 10km plus booking fee. To enter online visit miltonkeynes.mo-running.com
