Looking For Mo Motivation?

Mr MotivatorMr Motivator, well known for his bright colours, is set to don his Lycra unitards once again as MoRunning’s 2016 ambassador. With 17 MoRunning races scheduled across the UK in November, Mr. Motivator will be encouraging people up and down the country to sign up for its 5k or 10k races.

In the spirit of good fun and to raise funds for the Movember Foundation, MoRunners are being encouraged to join Mr. Motivator in his wacky gear by putting on their fancy dress and taking part in the fun runs. With over 16,000 MoRunners taking part in last year’s races, MoRunning is hoping to help raise a massive £100,000 for the Movember Foundation as part of the November’s fun runs.

Mr. Motivator, on being appointed as the MoRunning 2016 ambassador, commented: ‘I am so excited to be playing a role in this year’s MoRunning. It is a great opportunity to get dressed up in fancy dress and have fun, but beyond this, there is the chance to raise awareness about men’s health, whether this is mental or physical. I hope to motivate as many people as I can, to not only have fun with this challenge, but to also raise as much money and awareness as possible!”

The MoRuns will take place between November 1 and November 29 in 17 locations including Dublin, Leeds, Edinburgh, Cardiff, Manchester and London.
