As if we needed an excuse to sport an epic mustache, you've definitely got one now! Burton and Levy has teamed up with RUNdetroit for this year's Mustache Dache Detroit, "the biggest, baddest, hairiest running series on the planet," happening this Saturday, November 7.
Runners of all ages and abilities (with or without facial hair of their own) are invited to participate to raise money for men's health. Proceeds from the Mustache Dache will benefit ZERO, a great organization working to end prostate cancer.
The run will take place at Atwater Brewery, with the Kid Dache beginning at 9:50 am and 5k walk/run starting at 10am. Registration is open from now up until the race begins, and all runners will receive a super cool participant medal and t-shirt.
We're especially excited that Burton & Levy will be hosting this year's Mustache and Costume competition to take place following the run at 11am. Whether you grow your own, or sports a faux-stache just for the race, there are plenty of ways to get involved (and win!) with your most outrageous and impressive of facial hair.
