Mother's Day Races to Run with Your Mom

May 2nd, 2018



"There’s no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one." - Jill Churchill

Everyone should celebrate their mother, every day - not just on Mother’s Day. But you certainly want to honor your mom when the official day to celebrate her comes around in May. This year, don’t just get the usual flowers and chocolate. Switch it up by enjoying the day as a family and doing what she loves to do: being active!

Around the country, there are all kinds of Mother’s Day races to run with your mom, from 5Ks to half marathons. The races listed below are fun for all ages and abilities, so the whole family can participate. Mom will love it - and she’ll enjoy those flowers and chocolate that much more afterward!

With low registration costs, this race is affordable for the whole family and definitely in the budget as a gift to Mom.
