Thomas Awad impresses with his 'stache at Nationals


For the past few years, junior Thomas Awad has starred for Penn track and cross country and turned a lot of heads with his racing abilities.

But that’s not the only thing he’s turning heads with.

From his signature scraggly beard to a variety of different arrangements, Awad has been consistently on point with his facial hair choices.

This past weekend at Nationals, not only did he fight through a mid-race Achilles injury to achieve All American status with a 27th place finish, but he also got recognized for his spectacular style.

Sporting a mustache for cross country Nationals’ #StachiesatNachies, Awad — pictured above with senior Conner Paez — got some love from U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.

It will be a while until we see Awad back on the track, so let’s hope he takes the time to change up his style once again.
