Formerly known as The Gathering, this race has always coincided with Mother’s Day, so we decided to make it the official kick-off to a day of celebrating Mom!

The whole family is invited down to Lheidli T’enneh Memorial Park to soak up the sunshine, while running or cheering on those tackling this easy 5km route.

This point-to-point road race involves two loops around the park, starting and ending at the bandshell.


PGRR Members: Free

Early Registration: 15$ 5KM

Day-of Registration: 20$ 5KM

Registration fees and donations for this event get donated to the Wheelin’ Warriors of the North fundraising effort, going to BC Cancer Foundation.  

Supporting Wheelin’ Warriors of the North

The Prince George Road Runners have a partnership with the Wheelin’ Warriors of the North Cycling team for the Mother’s Day 5km.  The Wheelin’ Warriors of the North have been a team in Prince George since 2013 who raise money for the BC Cancer Foundation by participating in the Tour de Cure cycling event.  Riders from this team volunteer at the Mother’s Day 5km and then the amount of money made through registration fees and donations for this event get donated to the rider’s fundraising effort, going to BC Cancer Foundation.  If you are a full member and getting this event for free, please consider donating extra money to this event on the online registration or with cash in person on the day.

Route Description

The race begins on Taylor Drive – the paved, closed access road between the bandshell and riverbank at the eastern edge of the park.  Runners stay on Taylor Drive, as it wraps along the southern edge of the park and meets up with Ingledew Street.  From Ingledew, it’s a right turn onto 17th Avenue for a run down the park’s northern edge, followed by a short stretch away from the park on Taylor before coming around back into the park to finish the first 2.5km loop, and head out on the final lap.
