No MoRunning No Party

There are mo limits this weekend as runners take part in the Edinburgh and Glasgow 5K and 10K MoRun events. The Edinburgh race takes place at Holyrood Park on Saturday (11 November) while the Glasgow edition returns to Glasgow Green on Sunday (12 November).

While men across the country (some with more ease than others) will be pruning their fetching facial hair in an effort to raise awareness for Movember, both male and female runners will dig out their finest fancy dress to pound the streets. The events aim to raise awareness and funds for men's health charities. As the official running partner of Movember, MoRunners are encouraged to raise sponsorship to support Movember and fundraise for men's health.

Following inclusion of the 1.5k mini MoRun, expect to see loads more kids and families enjoying everything MoRunning is about - good fun, lots of laughs, loads of smiles, high fives and not forgetting the fancy dress and funny moustaches!

There are 18 MoRunning events across the UK during November, with a further Scottish race taking place on 26 November at North Inch, Perth.

Both the Edinburgh and Glasgow MoRun events are now sold out, however spaces still remain at the Perth event via the MoRunning website.
