The Mustache Dache and Entry giveaway!!!!

Who wants to run the Mustache Dache? I do!

The Mustache Dache is coming to Detroit.  The owner of the race, RUNdetroit has invited me to this 5k race and I'm hoping all of you can join me too.  It sounds like a fun one!  Here's some details.

The race is on November 9th at 10am start.  Remember to bring ID since they will be serving beer.

What's included?

The Mustache Dache shirt(if registered by 10/13)
Access to the post-race party, aka Mustache Bash
A chip timed 5k - runners and walkers welcome
10% of your registration fee goes to Movember
Free photobooth!
Prizes to the top 3 in each age group - I'm in the Mid-Life Crisis group(40-59).  They will also be doing prizes for some of the best costumes and teams.
An awesome finisher medal!
Post-race food
Entry to the post-race Beer Garden
Packet pickup at RUNdetroit the day before or race morning at the start area.
A reason to dress up and have a mustache(that's my favorite reason)(I may even grow one again - Goatee)
Yes - me last year!
While the course map is not posted yet, it sounds like a really fun course!   The start area will be at Atwater Brewery!  The course will go West along Atwater, past the Ren Cen and returning via the RiverWalk.  You get up to 60 minutes to complete the course so it's very family friendly.

Here's the best part!  RUNdetroit has offered to give away a free entry to one of my lucky readers for the Detroit race.  How awesome is that?  Here's the rules:

1) Go "like" RUNdetroit on Facebook(HERE), tell them "Detroit Runner sent you" on their wall, and leave me a comment on this blog post that you did it.(1 entry)

2) Go "like" Detroit Runner on Facebook if you don't already(HERE).  Leave me a comment on my wall that you saw the contest for the free entry.  Leave a comment on this blog post that you did it.(1 entry)

3) For those of you without Facebook access and/or for an extra entry, go to RUNdetroit's website(HERE).  Give me one fact about the store or the owners and let me know it here(1 entry)

That's it - pretty simple!  The contest will expire on October 10th at 6pm so I can randomly choose a winner so you will still be eligible for a free t-shirt.  I'll announce the winner on October 11th.

For those that don't win?  The current cost is $40, however, if you use the coupon code (detroitrunner), you will save 10%!  Yeah for following Detroit Runner!

Of course, I'll have my complete review of the race afterwards as well if you can't make it down.

A special thanks to RUNdetroit for sponsoring this giveaway!

  1. Of course I already like the DR page and RunDetroit :) But I posted on both. Also I have been to their website before but I absolutely love that they have a canine member on their about page- Ace! I bet he is very important with the logistics of the store :) This race looks like so much fun!!

  17. I stopped exercise in 2007 and gained 20 lbs and finally started running this July 2013, and finished the Brooksie Way half marathon in 2:02:23.
    I came across this blog sometime before Brooksie when I was looking at race reviews because everyone said its very hilly.
