The Mother’s Day Classic is fast approaching, so make sure you’re prepared for the big day with the below tips for an enjoyable day out!

What to bring?

Be as prepared as possible so you feel ready once you're at the event. Ensure you have comfortable shoes that you have run in before the race (visit your local The Athlete's Foot store to find the best shoes for you), wear clothes you like to run in and support The Breast Cancer Foundation by making sure they're PINK, don't forget your race bib and a small snack/drink to have before the race starts so you don't start on an empty stomach. You might also want to bring a spare change of clothes for after the race and some money for anything you want to purchase (including your lift home!)

Will MDC be a family outing?

If you are bringing the whole family along to the Mother’s Day Classic then best to be prepared. Just like any other big day out with the crew, you should pack some food and drinks, extra clothing in case it gets cold, and some form of entertainment to keep them occupied. It can turn into a long day for spectators so try to make it fun for everyone so they come along and support you next year too! If the kids are doing the run as well, make sure they have everything they need, such as a hat, comfortable clothes and snacks, so you can all have a great morning.
