Mum’s Day run
A Mother’s Day fun run is aiming to improve the heart health of New Zealand women. The Jennian Homes Mother’s Day fun run and walk is being held at Ellerslie Racecourse on May 12. Women of all ages and fitness levels are invited to participate in a five kilometre run or walk around the racecourse and surrounding streets. The event is part of a nationwide initiative in support of the Heart Foundation’s Go Red for Women campaign. ‘‘It’s a fun day focused on encouraging women to take time out of their busy schedules to make their own health a priority,’’ Jennian Homes franchise owner and event organiser Stu Munro says. The event is not timed, with participants free to complete the course at their own pace. Entrants receive a goody bag and go in the draw to win spot prizes on the day. Register for the Mother’s Day fun run and walk at jennian.co.nz before May 2 and receive a free event t-shirt while stocks last.
Jennian Homes Mother’s Day fun run and walk is on May 12 and starts at 9am. Meet at Ellerslie Racecourse Event Centre, check-in from 8am. Participants can run or walk two laps of the racecourse and surrounding area, a total of 5km.
