Dublin MoRun set to return on Saturday 24th November
MoRunning will host MoRuns at 22 different locations across the UK and Ireland throughout the month of ‘Movember’ including Dublin, to help raise awareness of men’s health issues and to raise vital funds for the Movember Foundation.
The Dublin MoRun will take place on Saturday the 24th November and will see MoRunners run around the stunning Phoenix Park.
MoRunning events are suited to runners of all abilities and of all ages, with a 5k option for the fun runners and a 10k option for those looking for a challenge. There is also a 1.5k Mini Mo run for children aged between 3 and 12 years.
In addition, for the first-time this year, runners can also take part in a “virtual MoRun” with runners encouraged to upload a screenshot of their result onto the website, which means that MoRuns can take place anywhere in the world! There, they will be placed onto the virtual MoRunning leaderboard and they will receive a medal and headband.
Now in its ninth year, 20,000 male and female runners are expected to take part in the MoRuns taking place up and down the country.
Runners are encouraged to don moustaches and run in fancy dress to raise vital funds for men’s health through the Movember Foundation with special “Mo medals” issued for the best-dressed MoRunners at each location.
Having fun as a family
Dave Krangel, Founder of MoRunning, said: “To be a MoRunner means you are part of something bigger than yourself, you’re part of a community, a family and a team. We encourage all of our participants to have fun during their run because that’s what it’s about; dressing up, enjoying yourself and crossing the finishing line with a smile on your face.
He added: “There’s also a serious message though, the runs will be great fun for all the family, but we will be raising plenty of money and awareness of men’ health issues at the same time.”
MoRunners can either run solo or enter as part of a team. Early bird prices start from €10 for the Mini MoRun for children; €12 for the virtual MoRun; €16 for the 5k option and €19 for the 10k option.
