Register for Classic
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.”
