Our Story

Run Like A Mother isn't just a Race, it’s our way of life.

We are every woman, from every walk or run of life, gathering together (or virtually) to encourage a healthy lifestyle through moving. On Mother’s Day, we celebrate who we are and what we do. 

Whether you are a mother or not, we understand the importance of modeling healthy behaviors for our future generations, and the caring of our own bodies and minds that make us stronger every day.

Run like a mother-

and never stop. 

The 2024 Run Like a Mother race supports the Ridgefield Library’s 

Noreen L. Papa “Mothers: Live Your Life” Fund

Contributions to the Fund will support library programs and collections dedicated to women's health and wellness, specifically to educate mothers to take care of themselves so they can take care of others.

Novice 5Kwalk/runtraining plan

The novice 5K program is designed for someone who has never run a 5K. Beginning a
running program can be a daunting and also negative experience if started too fast or
furiously. This program uses a safe, slow introduction to running by using a walk/run


Run Like a Mother® likes to use time, not distance, because it is important to get
your body used to the time at first. Before you know it, you will be covering the distance
without even realizing it!


The program is gentle. Be patient with your progression; it is easy to get ahead of schedule and do too much. If you feel good, pick up the walk intervals to a faster pace.
If the program feels too strenuous, slow down and let your body acclimate to the new
exercise. The program is broken down into 3 run training sessions a week. The time covered is about 45 minutes.
