Bendigo VIC

The Bendigo event involves two distances, a 4km walk or run and an 8km run. Online registrations are closed - refer below for details on how to register on the day.

If running or walking isn't your thing 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.
