Hashtag it up with the #MustacheDache

What is it?

It’s only the biggest, baddest, hairiest running series on the planet.  NBD.  It’s a mustache-themed run that’s a little bit Freddie Mercury and a little bit Ron Swanson.  It’s a fundraiser for men’s health and it’s the best excuse you’re going to find this side of 1976 to grow a mustache.

Kid’s Run

This year, we are offering a kid’s run, so the whole family can participate!  Kids will receive their own bib, finisher’s medal, and best of all, a Mustache Dache CAPE!  Nacho Libre, anyone?  The kid’s run will be for kids 12 & under and costs $20 to enter.  The course is 1/4 mile long so all kiddos can reasonably finish.

The Shirt

Get ready to dial up your style about three notches once you feast your eyes on the 2015 Mustache Dache shirt.  It’s a gender-specific, super-soft piece of sweet shirt style.  In other words, you’ll probably like it.

Please note that shirts can only be picked up in person at packet pickup or race day.  We do not mail out shirts afterwards or hold them.  No exceptions!

The Medal

All participants, including participants in the Kid’s Dache, receive a finisher’s medal! YAY!  It’s not ready yet, but when it is, you can bet your socks that we’ll post a preview right here.

The Photos

Packet Pick-Up

Want to escape the lines?  Come to pre-race packet pickup.  Simple as that.  Things can get a little crazy on race day.

Date: TBA
Time: TBA
Location: RUNdetroit
Map: http://www.run-detroit.com/contact/

Can I pick up my entire team’s packets and/or friends’ packets? YES! We encourage each participant to collect packets for either their entire team or for a friend. It’ll make race day much easier if you’ve already collected your packets and shirts! You DO NOT need an ID or note… we just ask that you make sure the other participants know so they don’t come too.

If you’re too cool for school, you can do your packet pickup on race day as well from 8am-9:45am.

Results

Results will be available as soon as possible after the race and will be posted here once available.

Volunteer

Karma is a five letter word.  So if you hate running or just want to compensate for felonies in a previous life, volunteering is the way to go.  We’ll post a link to sign up for volunteering later.

Prizes and Whatnot

As the ancient Greeks, we elect to recognize the fleetest of foot amongst our rapscallion hordes. Prizes will be given to the top 3 finishers in the following age groups:

  • No Mustache Growers (14 & Under)
  • Angst-filled (15-19)
  • “Mature” (20-29)
  • Full Growth Potential (30-39)
  • First Grey Hairs (40-49)
  • Mid-Life Crisis (50-59)
  • AARPwesome (60-69)
  • Forever Young (70+)

We will also recognize the best costumes that display the finest in sartorial harmony, and finally, we will recognize the teams with the best “team spirit”, which is a completely subjective and utterly biased judgement by East German Olympic judges from the ’88 Olympics.  And of course, the best mustaches will be recognized as well!

Refund Policy

Due to the upfront nature of event costs, we have a uniform policy of no refunds, transfers or deferrals to a future year. We know that plans change and unexpected things come up,  but we feel it is most fair to apply a uniform policy to all, instead of an arbitrary line of who merits a refund and who doesn’t. Thank you for your understanding.Make sure that you are good to go when you sign up!
