Run Like a Mother registration open

Registration is open for the 11th annual Run Like a Mother 5K.

The event, which offers a women-only 5K, kid’s one-mile race, and wonderful post race party for the entire family, will take place on Mother’s Day, May 13.

The kid's race happens at 8 a.m., and the women's race at 8:30 a.m.

Proceeds from the race benefit the Noreen L Papa “Mothers: Live Your Life” Fund at the Ridgefield Library.Noreen Papa was an integral part of Run Like a Mother for many years, who passed away in 2013 from cancer.

Since its start, Run Like A Mother has encouraged more than 35,000 women (novice, new and experienced) across the country to make running a part of their life, while benefiting local charities.

“Run Like a Mother has quickly become a Mother's Day tradition,” said founder Megan Searfoss. “The race is an opportunity to use running to improve their health, while celebrating with family and friends."

Run Like a Mother will be in six other locations this year: Frisco, Texas; Raleigh, N.C.; Milwaukee Wisc.; Missoula Mont.; Dayton, Ohio; and St. Paul, Minn.
