“The handlebar” “The fu manchu” “The chevron” “The pencil” “The walrus” Whatever your age, occupation or hey, even gender, odds are there’s a style of moustache suited just for you.
True, the moustache hasn’t been in vogue since “Magnum P.I.” went off the air (sorry, hipsters), but we’re encouraging you to rock the dirt squirrel and support a good cause with our #Anywhere5K Stache Dash on November 24 & 25, 2012.
Here’s the skinny. Thanks to the Movember movement, men (and women) around the world are growing and grooming Mo’s to raise funds and awareness for men’s health and prostate cancer.
And, because we’re always looking for a good excuse to rock the Mo (and who isn’t?), we’re encouraging runners to join the movement and become Mo Bros and Mo Sistas so they can participate in the #Anywhere5K Stache Dash.
All you ladies and gents out there are encouraged to start the month of November clean shaven and then register for our race. After that, harness your inner Wilford Brimley because it’s time to let that puppy grow! For all you ladies out there, if you aren’t comfortable growing your own Mo you can simply tape one on, or just support a gent sporting a Mo.
Before you ask, we’re not part of Movember. And no, this isn’t an officially sponsored event. Someday we’ll get in the cool club, but for now we just want to support a great cause by growing an awesome stache and raising some cash in the process.
Full details on registering for the #Anywhere5K Stache Dash and joining the global Movember initiative appear below. So go forth and become a Mo Bro or Mo Sista. Come Movember 1st, let the Mo grow!
#Anywhere5K Stache Dash

On race day, download and print your #Anywhere5K bib, run your race, and submit your time using the finisher form.
