Hashtag it up with the #MustacheDache

What is it?

What do you get when you cross Tom Selleck with Richard Simmons?  I don’t even want to know, but the Mustache Dache is the universe’s biggest and best mustache-themed running party.  Cross that finish line, and you’ll know what it means to live.  You’ll also know what it means to have a good time.  Come join us,  mustache or no, and help support Movember while working up a sweat!

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 will be short enough for all kiddos to reasonably finish.

Stay tuned for more details, including a preview of the cape, and exact start times.

The Medal

All participants in the Mustache Dache will receive a super-tasty, super-fine bit of mustache bling to hang about their neck and proclaim to their friends and family that they’re a true mustache fan.

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: Thursday, November 6th and Friday, November 7th
Time: 11am-7pm
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.

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.

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!

Directions and Parking

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!
