I mustache you a question: Do you like to run for charity?
By Brittany Anas
Mustaches — ironically brought back into style by the hipsters, perhaps? — are sure enjoying their time in the pop culture spotlight. Exhibit A: The mustache shower curtain. Exhibit B: “Moustaschionary” notecards. Convinced? Or do you need us to point you to mustache bandages? And we found all of those at Urban Outfitters.
The lip toupee is getting a run. Really. The Mustache Dache is a mustache-themed running series. Yes, if you live in Portland, Seattle, Detroit, San Antonio, Los Angeles, St. Petersburg, San Antonio or Corvallis — you’re in mustache run territory. Come November, you might just see a combination of running shorts and mouth brows dashing through your neighborhood … and it’s all for a good cause.
The quirky 5K race raises money for Movember, a global men’s charity that works to combat prostate and testicular cancer. The family-friendly race doles out t-shirts and “mustasche finisher medals” to participants. Oh, and there’s a Mustache Bash post-race party — complete with photo booths, costume contest, food trucks and a cameo appearance by Hulk Hogan’s blond, architectural ‘stache. OK, the last part was a lie.
A few official guidelines for the men. Start on Nov. 1 with a clean shaven face. And when people inquire about your mustache, tell them about the Movember fundraiser.
For all the ladies out there who don’t have a crumb catcher — or got their “mustaches” waxed by a manicurist with a good upsell technique — fear not. You can find some temporary mustaches. Yes, these will work for you guys who forgot to plan out anything beyond a five o’ clock shadow.
