Your ticket to the biggest races

Movember is proud to be an official charity partner for some of the world’s major marathons and events.

These events draw the most elite runners. Demand is high and getting a place can be difficult. That's why representing Movember at a marathon is great way to secure a spot. Participants who are selected will pledge to fundraise a minimum amount. In turn, you're guaranteed entry in some of the world’s most prestigious marathons.

Of course, if 26.2 miles is a bit much, you can instead test your mettle at a Spartan Race. These are shorter races, full of challenging and oh-so-fun obstacles to keeps things exciting.

Whatever you go for, you’ll be part of something amazing. You’ll also meet awesome people on the Movember team (in person or online), get personalized support, and score fantastic Movember swag – and help change the face of men’s health while you’re at it.
