Buxton Athletic Club got into the spirit of Movember at their latest monthly race - dubbed the Must-Dash.
High Peak MP Andrew Bingham was on hand to say “ready, steady mo” and start the five kilometre run around the Pavilion Gardens on Saturday, November 7.
The event was inspired by former club member Dave Carlisle, who was keen to highlight the moustache-growing campaign that raises awareness of men’s health issues.
Dave, 54, said: “Movember encouraged me to do regular testicular examinations.
“A couple of years ago I found a lump, I got straight to the doctor to get it checked. Thankfully it was nothing nasty but they did spot another problem.”
He added: “Men can be uncomfortable talking about ill-health,Movember is brilliant by making it much easier.”
Dave is growing his usual facial fuzz, but said the race was a good way to include women and children - who had moustaches painted by Phil Hutson, 67, a club regular and survivor of prostate cancer.
Phil said: “I’m keen to make sure men don’t put off seeking help. I tell everybody to go and get checked.”
Runners braved wet and windy conditions, with race fees raising £120 for the cause.
