What is Movember all about?
Movember is an annual event in the month November involving the growing of the most sexy manly facial hair in the world; the moustache, a.k.a. the Mo! The goal of Movember is to "change the face of men's health" by raising awareness for prostate and testicular cancer, and male suicide.

Why do you organise the Movember Run Amsterdam?
First of all, we love to run. But we equally enjoy seeing a few hundred men and women dressed up in their circus outfits and run through Amsterdam's Vondelpark. In 2013 we saw a video of Steve Prefontaine, an American middle and long distance runner who participated in the Olympics of 1972. Aside from being a great runner, Steve had an amazing moustache. So we thought: how cool would it be to see a few hundred Steve Prefontaines run through Amsterdam?
What will the event look like?
Like a hairy bunch of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas running a 5k run in Amsterdam's Vondelpark. It's not a long distance, so that can't be an excuse for not participating! The Movember Run Amsterdam (a.k.a. MoRun) is meant for men and women, with our without a (fake) moustache. We would love it if this year you dress up as your favourite circus artist though, but even that's not mandatory.
