Team Registration

In the interests of everyone’s safety, Mothers Day Classic participants will be asked to start in several waves according to your bib numbers, instead of starting in one large mass!

If you would like to be sure of starting in the same wave as your friends, why not nominate one of you to be a Team Co-ordinator and group yourself together in a team as you register.

Race Day Info Pack

A Participants Information Pack and your event bib will be mailed to all participants whose registration is received by Friday 4th of May 2007. You will also be able to download the Information Pack brochure here closer to the event.

If you register after the 4th of May, you will need to collect your event bib on the morning before your event at the Mothers Day Classic registration area.

Dedicate your Race

The Mothers Day Classic gives you a great opportunity to support or remember someone dear to you and their fight against breast cancer. Placards will be available to allow you to dedicate your participation, and a memorial minute of silence will be held before the event starts.

You can wear a tribute placard to dedicate your participation to someone you have lost to breast cancer or who is fighting the disease. To obtain your placard, tick the box on the registration form or visit our special placard tent on the day.
