Spring is on the verge of staying for a while, and with Spring comes the Mother’s Day Tiara 5k.
This race is near and dear to our hearts. Angela and I were both there for the very first Tiara 5k in 2006. I was there to stretch runners and Angela was there to run (it was her first 5k too). For the past 6 years I have had the honor of serving on the committee alongside the wonderful women at the Women’s Fund, and Boutique Fitness has been present with a stellar team each year.
The Mother’s Day Tiara 5k is by far one of my favorite road races. We start and finish at Oxford Creamery in Mattapoisett; where we have music by DJ Mello, a kids fun run, face painting, Showstoppers, Miss New Bedford and surrounding title holders, ice cream from Oxford Creamery, cake from Cravings, cupcakes from Flour Girls, and prizes (including Anchor Me nautical jewelry). All the frills for all the moms (and families) who participate on Mother’s Day.
Whether you’re a seasoned runner or you have ‘run a 5k’ on your bucket list, this race is for you. Everyone is welcome! You can join the Boutique Fitness team by choosing ‘Boutique Fitness’ in the TEAMS drop down menu at registration.
