Reg­is­ter for Clas­sic

Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

Wick­ham is set to hold its own Mother’s Day Clas­sic for the first time this year in a bid to en­cour­age more lo­cals to get in­volved.

The Wick­ham Recre­ation Precinct is or­gan­is­ing a lo­cal ver­sion of the pop­u­lar fun run for breast can­cer preven­tion, which is likely to take place on Wick­ham Oval on Mother’s Day morn­ing.

Kar­ratha has hosted a Mother’s Day Clas­sic event ev­ery year since 2011, but Wick­ham or­gan­iser Kir­ilee Lady­man said the long dis­tance be­tween towns posed an ob­sta­cle for some res­i­dents who had wanted to com­pete in the past.

“It’s a good ini­tia­tive for us and eas­ier for peo­ple to get to in Wick­ham,” she said.

“A lot can’t go (to the Kar­ratha event) be­cause of the dis­tance and tak­ing kids.”
