With over 1,000 Leeds runners donning fancy dress and digging deep to help raise awareness and funds for Movember last year, MoRunning has announced it is back this November. Hosted at Temple Newsam on Saturday 5th, MoRunning is calling on Leeds to rock everything and anything from a moustache to a wacky wig and get involved with its 2016 fun run.

 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, raising funds and awareness for the Movember Foundation. Now in its eighth year, MoRunning has also announced Mr. Motivator as the its 2016 ambassador, who will help to motivate thousands of runners 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.”
