Plus Family Fun celebration at Corica Park
Mosey, amble, or push a stroller—and by all means pick up your swag bag filled with goodies from local businesses—at the Mother’s Day 5K and 10K Run and Family Fun Day on Sunday, May 14, 7 a.m. to noon, at Corica Park Golf Course, 1 Clubhouse Memorial Rd.
Presented by Big Huge Day, a woman-owned event company, the family-friendly event starts and ends at Corica Park with snacks, swag, rehydration, and paper plate awards at the end. Coffee and juice will be served at 7 a.m., followed by a yoga warm-up and stretch with local yoga teacher Noelle at 8 a.m. and the 5K run at 9 a.m.—run it twice to complete a 10K. All runners must start their second lap by 9:45 a.m.
Participants may pick up swag bags—designed and printed by All Good Living in downtown Alameda—on Friday or Saturday at Lauren’s Closet, 1420 Park St., 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., or on race day at the start line from 7 to 8:30 a.m. Goodies will be provided by Corica Park Golf Course, &Mother.org, and many local businesses, including All Good Living, Lauren’s Closet, Island Savoy Market, and more.
After the race, mimosas will be served free to moms who want them. Fresh juice and soda water will also be served free for the moms/runners. The moms who participate in the race will also get flowers as well as breakfast—fresh biscuits with either jam or a fried egg—courtesy of Biscuit Baby. Food and beverages will also be available for non-runners to purchase.
Face painting and local vendors will be at the site, and Corica Park is offering discounts for the driving range all morning. Jim’s on the Course is a great place for the family to enjoy a full brunch. Kids are welcome to walk/run with mom but will need to sign a waiver before participating.
