While usually Movember is known as the challenge of growing a moustache for the month of November, this year Speedo and Movember are challenging you to get active for 30 days by taking part in a number of moustached themed swims through the Speedo Fit app.
The aim of the 30 day challenge is to give everyone the opportunity to take part – so whether you’re a Mo Bro or a Mo Sista you have the chance to MOVE for Movember. 30 MOVEs in 30 days. How you MOVE each day is up to you…
Speedo a Mo features 8 swimming challenges, which are virtually located around the world and all shaped like iconic moustaches. Mo Bros and Sistas can complete these challenges in any pool they like, at any time, logging their progress as they go. There are different circuits for all levels of swimmer and completing them all equates to a 30km swim, which is pretty awesome and a great way to complete 30 MOVEs in Movember.
So what do you need to do? Firstly, sign up to MOVE at Movember.com so you can keep track of your fundraising and tell everyone about your challenge. Then download the Speedo Fit app so you can easily track and share your swimming progress.

“Moving on a regular basis can reduce your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer by up to 50% and lower your risk of early death by up to 30%. It’s also one of the best ways to stay mentally healthy and one of the best treatments for mild to moderate depression.” Sarah Coghlan, head of Movember UK.
