MoRunning has announced it is making an exciting new comeback this November.
Hosted at Ormeau Park on Sunday November 6, the people of Belfast are being called upon to rock everything and anything from a moustache to a wacky wig and get involved with this year’s fun run.
It comes after over 1,000 Belfast runners donned fancy dress and dug deep to help raise awareness and funds for Movember last year.
The Movember Foundation is the leading global organisation committed to changing the face of men’s health.
With both 5k and 10k races on offer, and all ages and abilities welcome, participants will kick-start the race at 10.00am complete with moustaches and fancy dress.
Now in its eighth year, MoRunning has also announced Mr. Motivator as its 2016 Ambassador, who will help to motivate thousands of runners across Belfast ahead of the runs.
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 we’re all about; dressing up, enjoying yourself and crossing the finishing line with a smile. We even have prizes for the best dressed MoRunner.
“All abilities are welcome – and for those that need a little helping hand, we’ve recruited the support of Mr. Motivator to motivate our MoRunners ahead of the race.
“As our Brand Ambassador, Mr. Motivator is a fun and popular addition to our team, who has found a really unique way to promote health and fitness. He is all about not being afraid to join in and be a bit silly – and that’s what we’re passionate about too.”
Mr. Motivator, on having the opportunity to inspire Belfast as MoRunning Brand Ambassador, added: “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 MoRun will take place on November 6 at Ormeau Park in Belfast. For more information, please visit mo-running.com.
