SOUTHAMPTON is set to host its first ever MoRun this Movember.

The charity run will take place on November 18 to help raise awareness of men’s health issues and funds for the Movember Foundation.

All are welcome, and the event is suitable for all ages and abilities.

There will be a 5k fun run, a 10k option and a 1.5k mini MoRun for children between the age of three and 12.

Runners are encouraged to wear fancy dress and moustaches as special ‘mo’ medals will be issued to the best-dressed participant

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 it’s about; dressing up, enjoying yourself and crossing the finishing line with a smile on your face.

He added: “There’s also a serious message though, the runs will be great fun for all the family, but we will be raising plenty of money and awareness of men’ health issues at the same time.”

This is the ninth year since the first MoRun and this year 22 will be taking place across the country.

Runners can either run solo or enter as part of a team. Early bird tickets can be purchased from
