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 Sunday 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 Sunday session with the Mothers Day Classic team. 


  • $420 without childcare. 

  • Childcare is added at $18 per child per session.

You can pay upfront or by direct debit. Book your place here.


  • Wednesday Sessions will start on 21 March 2018
  • The first Sunday session is on 25 March 2017 at 6.30am at Balmoral.
