HUNDREDS of runners took to the starting line to take on the annual Mo Run.

The national running series returned to the city in support of the Movember Foundation, which addresses health issues in men, including prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention.

Celebrating its tenth anniversary, the marathon saw babies as young as one years old cross the finish line at Southampton Common, as well as furry friends who gave their moustache-wearing owners company along the way.

Runs involved a Mini Mo 1.5k run for one to 12-year-olds, as well as a 5k and 10k run for adults.
