Mums on the run

This run is open to all women, so whether you are a mum or not, you can still join in...because mums are important to everyone! We will provide you with expert advice to kick your training into action; we are here to support you the whole way.

Join other mums and enjoy running a fantastic 5k route through the wonderful gardens and surrounding grounds of the beautiful Waddesdon Manor country house in Buckinghamshire. Bring the whole family and after you have collected your race medal, you will be given a FREE family ticket to spend time relaxing and visiting the attractions such as the house, gardens, aviary and woodland playground, plus 10% discount in all shops & restaurants.

The Mums on the Run 5k is supported by female Olympic Marathon runner Liz Yelling. Liz is a mother herself and offers fantastic advice and tips on how to juggle being a new mum with keeping fit and the importance of exercising.

Liz says:

Come on, lace up your trainers and let’s get out there! Be a Mum on the Run!

As a lifelong runner and Mum to daughter Ruby it’s great to be involved with the Mums on the Run project. I am only too aware of the demands on Mums and the time restrictions on exercise time. Running is a great form of regular exercise as it is cost and time efficient. It’s great ‘you time’. As a busy Mum it doesn’t take much time to slot a quick run in. My daughter Ruby has been in the running buggy with me or my husband pushing her almost every day since she was 4 months old and now at 2.5 years she certainly provides a great workout and she loves the time in the open air. Exercise is great for mothers and their children.

Liz YellingI know that being able to get out and run certainly helps me to be a better mother and I hope to also be a great role model for my daughter now and in the future. The Mums on the Run 5k is a super event and a great motivator for keeping you on track with your health and fitness. 5k is the perfect distance for keeping fit and having fun for young and old, beginners and the more established runner.

Why choose Action?

When Jo was admitted to hospital for emergency surgery 29 weeks into her pregnancy, nobody knew what the outcome would be for mother or baby. Thankfully, Jo and husband Will are now the proud parents of Samuel, who survived being born at just 30 weeks.

To give Samuel’s tiny lungs the best possible chance to develop, doctors injected Jo with steroids for two days ahead of the operation.

“For my family it was a hugely stressful time,” Jo says. “No-one knew what would happen to the baby. I was in a lot of pain so they were very concerned for me, too.”
