THE POWER OF MORUNNING
The power of MoRunning brings out the best in all of us!
Whether it makes you run fast, run in style, run in pride or run together, it has the ability to make us all smile, whilst at the same time help raise massive awareness and funds for Men's Health through the Movember Foundation charity.
2017 is set to be even better than ever. One of the most exciting additions to this year is the introduction of Mini MoRunning. A 1.5km mini MoRun. Remember MoRunners, you're part of a community, a family, a team. When you step up to that start line, remember that you're helping men live longer, healthier lives.
We'll clap for you, we'll shout at you, we'll support you, maybe even laugh at you (all in good humour of course) but mainly we will praise you for your commitment to making a difference. Run hard, run fast, have fun and enjoy being part of something special.

Join the hunt for Safe City Bear!
If you go down to the city this summer….you may come across a teddy bear!
The summer hunt for Durham's 'Safe City Bear' was launched in the Market Place in Durham city. Safe City Bear was joined by police, civic dignatories and local families who helped with the launch. A total of 115 teddy bears were hiding in shop and cafe windows across the city centre, each wearing a blue, red, green or yellow sash representing a key safety warning.
Red means “Say No to Strangers” Yellow means “Keep it Hidden, Keep it Safe” Blue means “Stay Safe around Rivers and Ponds” Green means “Keep Durham City Tidy”.
To help us make Durham the safest city in the country, the idea was that children, would get involved to hunt for the teddy bears and when found would be reminded of the safety message that particular bear represented.
The winner is….
The bear hunt ended on Sunday, 30th August and the winner announced on Wednesday, 2nd September, is Isa, Year 3 from Finchale Primary School.
