Start growing your mustache (if you can) “Movember” 1st and come show your support with other Mo Bros and Mo Sistas for Men’s Health initiatives at our Stache Dash 5K on November 23rd!
WHAT IS STACHE DASH NYC?
The Stache Dash NYC is 5K “fun run” wrapping up the month of Movember. It’s very simple. Grow and sport your stache showing your support for Men’s Health and Movember. On November 23rd meet up at Chelsea Brewing Co at Chelsea Piers, run a fun and casual 5K, and enjoy a beer at the finish at Chelsea Brewing Co (included with your registration).
This is a great opportunity to sport your freshly grown mustache, dress up with your friends, run a 5K along the Hudson River, enjoy a beer, and do a little good for the community.
Flash Dash Series events bring amazing and fun New Yorkers together and the Stache Dash will be no different. Our style of running is fun, casual, not timed, and always includes prizes for the best dressed and top finishers. We also think running and beer go hand in hand so you’ll get frosty one on us with your registration. You’ll be doing good for the community as we donate a percentage of profits to Movember Foundation.
1. Grow your Stache for Movember
2. Pay $25 (includes a beer & donation to Movember Foundation)
3. Run 5k with your friends and other amazing people (sign in starts at 9:30 a.m., the run begins at 10:00 a.m)
4. Drink beer & celebrate! **Your ID is required to drink beer, no exceptions!**
Start & Finish will be at Chelsea Brewing Company at Chelsea Piers. We will have a booth for your bags & a fresh beer for all!
See the course map HERE. Run will be from Chelsea Brewing Co down Hudson River Park to Laight St and back
If you can’t run, but still want to donate, do so HERE (Flash Dash Series Mo Fundraising Page).

STACHE DACHE NYC is part of Flash Dash Series Events. For a list of all of our events visit http://www.flashdashseries.com.
Flash Dashes happen once a month and are underground, philanthropic, spontaneous, grass-root, city spun, fun runs. Much like a “flash mob”. but for runners. Tweet, spread the word, support a good cause or two, be a catalyst of change and a force of good in the world.
WHAT IS MOVEMBER?
Movember is the organization responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in the US and around the world during the month or November. With their Mo’s, men and women raise vital awareness and funds for men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.
Men start Movember 1st clean shaven. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.
Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.
At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Partés held around the world by Movember, for Movember.
