**This event has become a virtual challenge. Please contact [email protected] if you have any questions**
This event has been changed to a virtual challenge due to increased restrictions from the government and your MoRun venue. You may not be able to physically come together but you can still run for each other, you can still run as one as MoRunners throughout the month of November, you can still dress up and grow a Mo (or paint one on!) and still continue to support Movember.
The York MoRun takes place at the iconic location of York Racecourse. The course is flat and on a path, so normal running shoes are suitable. Off road running buggies are allowed, but the course is not suitable for wheelchairs. Please note that there are 2 road crossing on the route, so you must take good care.

This is a great family event, with lots of silly fancy dress and groovy music, so it will be great fun to come and watch.
You're more than welcome to come along and cheer your friends and family around the course. There's also a strong charitable focus, so the more support the better.
This is a fancy dress event, with special prizes for the best costume, so don't forget to dress up!
It is especially encouraged to draw on or wear a fake moustache (unless you've grown one already, that is). You will receive your free MoRunning Headband in your race pack, so make sure to put it on before the race.
*Please make sure that your Bib race number is fully visible on the outside.
Am I allowed to wear headphones?
Headphones are allowed, but you must make sure that you are aware of your surroundings and are able to hear instructions from marshals and fellow runners.
Do I need to fundraise for the Movember Foundation?
Fundraising is not compulsory, but anything you can raise would make a big difference. When you enter, you have the option of making a donation. You can fundraise for any charity of your choice. MoRunning supports the Movember Foundation which tackles men's health, focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
What are the age restrictions?
Children are permitted to run in any of the events, as long as their parent/guardian is confident that they are able to finish the course. Parents/guardians must be responsible for their children at all times. The Mini Mo event is restricted to younger children aged 3-12.
Is there anywhere I can leave my bags?
Yes, a bag storage area is located by the registration area. However, space is very limited so please pack lightly. The bag storage gazebos will always be attended, but it is not recommended to bring anything valuable.
All good did it to help the cause and raise awareness. I ran for Macmillan cancer support although a smaller event it was a good time and a rewarding run!
