This year, the Mother’s Day Classic is going local! Mother’s Day Classic Local combines the flexibility of a virtual fun-run or walk with the community atmosphere seen at physical Mother’s Day Classic events.



Donating to the National
Breast Cancer Foundation


Donated since 1998


Australia-wide in 2020

We are challenging you to get active for breast cancer research but this year, it will be so much more than a celebration on one day. You’ll be joining a special community who are coming together to honour the 1 in 7 Australian women who are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.

So how can you get involved?

Register yourself or your team

This year you’ll receive a race pack full of goodies, access to our online content and the opportunity to be a part of the incredible MDC community.


Set yourself a goal

When you register, set a goal for Mother’s Day Classic Local. You can train for 5km, 10km or choose your own distance. Walk, jog or run, it’s completely up to you!

Join the training period

Join the official training period starting on April 7th. You’ll have access to the online portal to track your kilometres, fundraise and enjoy content such as fitness videos and even a kids’ zone.


Local locations to be announced

All registered participants will be invited to walk or run, at no additional cost, at various local locations across Australia. Stay tuned for announcements in April.

Get your race pack

All participants will receive the ultimate Mother’s Day Classic race pack (valued at $30) including a medallion, race bib, backpack, start/finish line ribbon and sponsor goodies. Adults will also receive a limited edition head scarf and our special kids’ race pack includes chalk and stencils. Our furry friends can get a pet bandana, so that every member of the family can join in on the fun!


Celebrate Mother’s Day

On Mother’s Day, set out to achieve your goal in your own time and place or at one of our local locations. Honour those touched by breast cancer and remember that you’re making an impact by getting active for life-saving breast cancer research.
