Being involved and completing the Mother’s Day Classic is a challenging and rewarding experience which is further enhanced with a little preparation - for both the walking and running events. Here are some training tips for participants to help with preparation, which you are advised to start at least 4-6 weeks before the event.
Our community training partner, parkrun, provide the perfect opportunity to get some kilometres in your legs before the big day. They organise free, weekly, 5km times all over Australia. You find one near you here.
While training always wear comfortable walking/running shoes and loose clothes (or specialised running gear if you prefer), so you can move and breathe freely. If you are a wheelchair user, the programs below are your guidelines too, for building up to your goal pace for the event and distance of your choice.
Incorporating some exercise into your day, in the weeks leading up to the event, will increase your enjoyment and overall comfort. Just 20-30 minutes of walking, or wheeling, at a reasonably brisk pace several times a week for 4-6 weeks before the event itself, will see a noticeable improvement.
Below are some suggestions of a training program sponsored by our friends at The Athlete's Foot
The Mother’s Day Classic is the perfect opportunity to get moving as well as support a great cause. For the 4km walk and run, it’s important to train so you can feel and achieve your best on race day. This introductory six-week training program is aimed at beginners… we all have to start somewhere!
For the 8km Mother’s Day Classic run, an especially designed training program has been created to help you reach your personal goals. The Intermediate to Advanced training program is aimed at those who are already exercising three or more times per week. It can be followed for any race up to 10km, commencing 10 weeks prior to race day.
