Mother's Day Classic local event to be held on Magnetic Island
Bookings open this morning for the Women in Super Mother’s Day Classic local locations.
There are more than 70 locations across Australia confirmed so far where people can join others on a designated route in their local areas to walk, run or jog the Mother’s Day Classic on Sunday, May 9, and get active for breast cancer research.
These locations will be smaller and more informal than in previous years due to limits on public gatherings. However, Local locations will be big on community spirit, uniting Australians on Mother’s Day to celebrate and honour those affected by breast cancer and raise vital funds for breast cancer research.
“After having to go virtual last year, the Mother’s Day Classic is returning in 2021 with local community participation. We are very excited to open bookings today for all these locations across the country where Mother’s Day Classic Local supporters can don their pink attire, connect with the MDC community, and take part in the event together on Mother’s Day in a COVID-safe manner,” said Zara Lawless, Mother’s Day Classic CEO.
“Due to the ever-changing climate we live in, participation numbers are capped at each location, so spots are limited. People will need to book early to secure their location of choice.”
Alternatively, participants can take part in the Mother’s Day Classic on a day and time at a location that suits them.
When participants sign up they will receive a limited-edition race pack valued at more than $30. It includes a backpack, a Mother’s Day Classic Local commemorative medal, a race bib, head scarf, start/finish line ribbon to run through, and plenty of sponsor goodies giving participants everything they need to bring the Mother’s Day Classic to life.
There is also a special race pack for kids, and for the first time in MDC history you can register your furry friend. Participating pets will receive a bandanna.
Registration also includes exclusive access to the MDC portal which features a variety of online content, including fitness tips and workouts, cooking and nutrition advice, health and wellness tips, and much more – as well as an array of activities for kids. The portal allows MDC entrants to track their training kilometres and fundraising efforts, with all proceeds going towards breast cancer research.
