SMH Half Half Marathon Training 

The SMH Half Marathon is held on the 3rd Sunday in May. In 2017 it's on Sunday the 21st of May.

It's a big step up from the Mothers Day Classic but we run these programs together.

You do your short work on a Wednesday with the Mothers Day Classic Team and then step up for a longer run on a Friday Morning between 6.30am and 8am to build your endurance event for this 21km challenge.

It's a great way to build the fitness you need for this gruelling event.

Elite Event Fees for SMH Half are based on a Wednesday and Friday session with the Mothers Day Classic team. 


  • $420 without childcare.
