Description

The Mother’s Day 5K takes place in the South Park area of Charlotte, NC. The Mother’s Day 5K is the new family tradition to starting off your Mother’s Day weekend by celebrating all that is special for the Moms out there. Although the event is designed to celebrate the Moms and Moms to be, we encourage the entire family to participate….yes, Dads and boys too. There will be great activities for the kids (face painting, bouncy house, make a card or sign for Mom, etc.) and FREE MOMosas for our beautiful Moms (while supplies last). The event promotes a healthy lifestyle with a focus on fun, family, and community spirit!

Kid’s Dash

This is our favorite event! The kid’s dash is very informal so they do not need to register but it gives the kiddos an opportunity to run through the finish line like Mom and Dad. Depending on the numbers, we may have to break it down in to age groups for safety reasons.

Timing

We are happy to partner with Run Charlotte to time the race using Chronotrack Timing Systems.

Age divisions

Overall, Masters, 12 and under, 13-18, 19-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70 and over.

Training Plan

We've got training plans for you as you prepare for the Mother's Day 5K.  Check out two different Mother's Day 5K Training Plans powered by Forward Motion.

Version 1 

The version 1 plan is meant for the beginner runner who has never attempted to run or train for anything before. This is a plan meant for individuals who are just trying to have a healthier lifestyle and achieve their first 5K. 

This plan is based off of individuals who could at this very moment can run a max of around 2:00 minutes or less. 

Listed below is an 10 week guide to your first 5K, with the goal of running either 3 or 4 days per week, and having 1 additional day for some form of strength training. The plan will mainly consist of run/walk intervals. For example, if it says “4 x 1 run, 3 walk” that means you have 4 sets of 1 minute running at an easy pace, 3 minutes walking. The total time for that example would be 16 minutes. 

Version 2 

The version 2 plan is meant for the beginner runner who has never attempted to run or train for anything before. This is a plan meant for individuals who are just trying to have a healthier lifestyle and achieve their first 5K. 

This plan is based off of individuals who could at this very moment can run a max of around 8:00 minutes or less. 

Listed below is an 10 week guide to your first 5K, with the goal of running either 3 or 4 days per week, and having 1 additional day for some form of strength training. The plan will mainly consist of run/walk intervals. For example, if it says “4 x 3 run, 2 walk” that means you have 4 sets of 3 minutes running at an easy pace, 2 minutes walking. The total time for that example would be 20 minutes. 

 

“At Forward Motion, we want you to enjoy running. We want it be a form of freedom and accomplishment, not something you dread to do. We want running to fit into your lifestyle, not take over your life. And more than anything else, we want you to enjoy the process, not just the end result.” 

*This plan was written by Adam Jones, Coach at Forward Motion, and Charlotte Marathon record holder.
