We are excited that so many of you have decided to spend your Mother’s Day morning with us this year.  We know that you will have a great race day experience whether you decide to spend the whole day  with us or if you decide to run in the morning and get back to celebrate with the family at home.  Bottom line is the crew at Corrigan Sports was raised right and know how to honor Mom!  We have come up with a number of special activities to help make your Frederick Running Festival experience extra special.

FLOWERS AT THE FINISH LINE- There is no better way to say Thank You than with flowers. This year, all female finishers will be provided with a flower when they cross the finish line on Sunday, courtesy of Safeway. This is in addition to the medal and the race premium they earn for completing the race. (Some of us know flowers also say I’m Sorry but that is a story for another day!)

Flowers for Moms

MOTHER/CHILD RELAY DIVISION– Join our special Mother-Child relay division and make it a family affair.  Those Moms who run with their child will earn a special finisher medal to slide over their relay medal that they will also earn. Both members of the team will get this unique keepsake to remind them of their Mother’s Day run.  This is open to any Mother/Child relay combo.  When you register for the relay, you will see the Mother/Child option when you select your division under Male, Female or Mixed. NOTE:  If you have already registered and would like to switch to this division, simply email [email protected]

FREE FAMILY PHOTO BOOTH– As a special Mother’s Day gift, our friends from CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield and MarathonFoto will be on hand to take complementary family photos post-race. Bring your loved ones to the Celebration Village and have your group photo taken. (Different than your post race photo taken in the Runners Only Compound.) Preserve that lasting memory for years to come. Race day attire acceptable! No ties or dresses necessary for this photo. Images will be available for FREE download along with your other race day and on-course shots on the MarathonFoto website.

VIM LOUNGE– We are turning our VIP hospitality area into the VIM Lounge– Very Important Mom, that is!   The VIM Lounge will be located on the stage right at the finish line and covered from the elements.  We invite all Mom’s and their guests to purchase special passes to celebrate their finish and watch others cross the line. The ticket will grant them access to a Carrabba’s Italian Grille lunch, and prime seating to watch the finish line festivities. Throughout the day we will raffle drawings for race gear, future race entries, gift certificates, etc. and special activities just for our VIM section. Celebrate in style with your loved ones. Tickets can be purchased from our Shoppes at Corrigan Sports storefront.  Two Ticket Options:  Just a VIM ticket for $20 or for $40, (2) VIM Tickets and a complementary Run Like a Mutha shirt.
