Join the movement to raise funds for the White Cloud Foundation and Aussie mums in need. The 2020 Mummy Run isn’t a race – it’s a chance to work together and show your support for a great cause.
All funds raised at this event will go towards the White Cloud Foundation’s Meals for Mums Program. The program provides practical support (including nutritious home-delivered meals) to women with or at risk of developing perinatal depression.
A simple meal can make a world of difference.
What is the Mummy Run?
The event is designed to run like a relay:
- Each relay team should be comprised of 4-10 people – the more people in your team, the less running you have to do! You can choose how your team would like to participate in the Run from the options below.
- Runners don’t have to be mums…they can be kids, dads, grandparents, or anyone that is keen to run a few laps for a great cause.
- With the “Traditional” Mummy Run, the first runner completes five laps (2kms) before they hand the baton to the next runner. The second runner then completes five laps (2kms) and so on until 80km is completed.
- Make sure you have 1 GPS watch per team for us to attach to your team baton.
Choose how you’d like to take part
This year, your team has options! You can choose how you and your team would like to participate from the following:
- Traditional Mummy Run: Team of 4-8 (or more/less) runners completing 80km in the traditional relay style as outlined above.
- Mini-Mummy Run: Team of 4-8 (or more/less) runners completing 50km in the traditional relay style as outlined above.
- Village Mummy Run: Team of as many runners as you’d like, running solo, in pairs or multiples at the same time to complete either 40km or 80km. This category is designed to enable teams to complete the Mummy Run faster while still being challenged by individual distances. We are open to suggestions as to how your team would like to complete the “Village-style” Mummy Run.
Where’s it happening?
- Toowong Harriers, Jack Cook Park, Taringa (Brisbane, Queensland)
If you’d like to organise a Mummy Run within your own local community, all you need is a 400m running track (athletics field) and at least four runners to participate in the relay.
