WALK, RUN OR JOG: The 2022 Mother’s Day Classic comes to Newcastle

To celebrate the 25th edition of the Mother’s Day Classic, people are invited to walk, run or jog at a local leg of the fundraiser being held in Carrington.

For a quarter of a century, the Mother’s Day Classic has brought Australians together on Mother’s Day to celebrate and honour those affected by breast cancer and raise vital funds for breast cancer research. 

On Sunday, 8 May, that tradition will continue at over 70 event locations across the country.

“Major events are back! We are so excited to announce that there will be up to 70 event locations in major cities, metro areas and regional towns for Australians to register and get active for breast cancer research in 2022,” said Mother’s Day Classic CEO, Zara Lawless.

“After two challenging years, having to first go virtual and then go local, the Mother’s Day Classic is now ready to deliver a fun and inspiring event experience in a COVID-safe manner that you won’t want to miss.”

Participants of the local event receive a commemorative medallion at the finish line and have access to downloadable race bibs and tribute cards, as well as the online fundraising dashboard and fitness tracker.
