Mother’s Day Classic Melbourne

Alexandra Gardens, Melbourne
Sunday 13th May, 2012

Are you looking to participate in an upcoming fun run, walk, ride or charity event in Melbourne?

The Mother’s Day Classic is one of Australia’s largest charity events and raises money for breast cancer research. More than 120,000 people took part in 2011 and raised $3 million. The 2012 Mother’s Day Classic takes place on Sunday 13 May, 2012.

The Mother’s Day Classic is an opportunity to do something active and fun on Mother’s day, while remembering those who have been affected by or who are living with breast cancer and raising money for breast cancer research.

*UPDATE (6th June 2012) FINAL TOTAL

The Melbourne event continues to break records and exceed all our expectations with 44,000 registered to participate in 2012. Even the rain and cold couldn’t dampen the enthusiasm and community spirit of the participants and over 600 volunteers who came along to celebrate the 15th anniversary and pay tribute to those who have been affected by breast cancer in some way.

Together we have raised a record $4 million at the 2012 Women in Super’s Mother’s Day Classic.

This year’s success brings to $14.8 million the total funds raised in 15 years by you and all past participants for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) and its research programs.

Due to the large number of participants expected at this years events and to ensure your safety, all events will be sent off in waves for 2012.

Runners:

Both the 4km and the 8km run events have two wave starts. You must select a wave start during the registration process. The times are as follows:

7.30am 4km run starts – first wave (white race bibs)
7.45am 4km run starts – second wave (orange race bibs)

8.15am 8km run starts – first wave (yellow race bibs)
8.20am 8km run starts – second wave (dark pink race bibs)

Each running wave has a capacity of 4,000 participants. Once the wave is full, participants will have to select another wave.
**Participants must start in the wave selected.

For all the runners that are worried about the NEW WAVE system ruining your time, don’t be. Your results will be produced by net time. The timing tag will record your official time from when you cross the start line until you cross the finish line. However, trophies will be awarded to the first three males and females in each event based on gun time. So, if you feel you actually have a chance of placing, run in the first wave of your chosen distance.

Walkers

During the registration process, walkers will be able to select one of the following waves to start in:

9.30am – Wave Start Light Pink
10.00am – Wave Start Blue
10.30am – Wave Start Green

Each wave has a capacity of 10,000 participants. Once the wave is full, participants will have to select another wave.
**Participants must start in the wave selected.

From modest beginnings in 1998, the Mother’s Day Classic has grown into one of Australia’s largest national charity events and has become an integral part of Mother’s Day for thousands of Australians.
