Runners Tributes Runners Mother and baby


The Cairns event involves a 3km or 5km walk or a 5km or 8km run.

Online registrations for the 2014 Mother's Day Classic are now open.

If running or walking isn't your think then you can still join in the fun of the day by volunteering to help out.

Alternatively you can come along and support all walkers and runners and join in the entertainment and activity taking place around the course. 

Remember to fill in a tribute card to wear on the day in memory of a loved one or with words of encouragement to someone currently undergoing treatment. Create your tribute card here.

If you wish to make a stand alone donation to the Mother's Day Classic for breast cancer research, you can do so from our website here.
