MoRunning Race Weekend Report 12th & 13th November 2016

Posted on by MoRunning

With the month of MoRunning halfway through, we had a fantastic time this past weekend in Battersea, Edinburgh, Bristol, Cardiff and Glasgow! We were treated to an amazing warm up in Cardiff thanks to our one and only brand ambassador Mr Motivator! Wow, did he get the crowd moving! He’s still got it! All of our event teams have reported back to MoRunning HQ and we have loved hearing all the stories. We can’t wait to see photos of you all getting stuck in – the few we have seen have raised more than a mere smile back at MoRunning HQ! Big high fives to all of you! As you know, we work with F/Stop Photography so watch out for the photo emails coming out soon!

Thanks to all those of you who have raised a heap of cash for the Movember Foundation, as after all this is why we MoRun – the  money helps make massive strides for mens health and you should all feel really proud. You have raised almost £49,000 and at the halfway point we would love to think we could push hard and double this!

We wanted to highlight and congratulate the first 3 place holders at each event as well as some of the most noticeable fancy dress wearers!

Edinburgh

There was serious glamour going on here – we had sequins and tiaras! You ladies definitely raised the tone of the day! We also saw a fair few selfie sticks and love some of our photos of you taking photos of yourselves!

Special mention to the Aubrey family who had 3 entrants and they had a very successful day with Mum and son coming first in their 5k’s and Dad coming 14th overall.
