MoRunning Continues To Grow

MoRunner in Glasgow

Around 2,000 Scottish runners took part in MoRuns in Glasgow and Edinburgh on Saturday (9 November). Both events consisted of a 10k and 5k race and were part of 11 MoRun events taking place across the UK and Republic of Ireland during Movember.

Each MoRunner wore a moustache for the event which raises funds for Movember charity, with many participants also wearing fancy dress. 900 runners converged on Glasgow Green on a fairly crispy morning, but entrants' Mo-tivation was undeterred by the cold weather. The first male to cross the line was Graham Allen, completing the 5k in an impressive 18:26, followed shortly after by female winner Jen Telford who finished in 20:07. In the 10k, Terence Coyle clocked 37:14 minutes to take fastest male, with Katie Devenney fastest female (40:48).

Julien Bontempi, Glasgow MoRun race director, said: "We were delighted at the growth of the second Glasgow MoRun, with good crowd of MoRunners turning up to Glasgow Green in awesome fancy dress and comedy moustaches. "

In Edinburgh, weather held for most of the race with some showers but the cold temperatures were quickly forgotten as the runners tackled Arthur's Seat. The first male to cross the 5k line was Danny White who completed the course in an impressive 18.01 minutes, followed shortly by female winner, Fionna Barrow, in 23:12. Tom Wilson was fastest male in the men's 10k in 36:50 with Hedwig Ponjee finishing in 42:08 for the first female.

Dave Krangel, Edinburgh MoRun race director, said: "MoRunning is about enjoying running with friends and family whilst raising funds for Movember to help fight men's cancers. The atmosphere in Edinburgh was buzzing and we hope to have raised around £30 000 for charity."
