RUNNING IN THE FAMILY
MEET the McClure women — four fit, fabulous mums who’ve beaten every excuse in the book not to exercise.
Led by matriarch Janie, 65, a mother of five and grandmother of 12, along with three of her daughters, Fiona, 43, Alice, 41, and Grace, 35, these ladies know all about being busy juggling work, children and managing a household.
But that doesn’t stop them from pulling on their runners and going for a nice long run to unwind.
“I love having that time to myself and feeling fit enough to be able to run and enjoy it,” says Fiona.
“It’s just a time out and it clears my head,” says Alice.
The quartet have made a tradition of competing in the Medibank Melbourne Marathon Festival for the past decade under the team name of Mums on the Run, and will line up again in October running across the 10km and half marathon events.
The Medibank Melbourne Marathon Festival is on Sunday, October 18. See melbournemarathon.com.au.
