Day 5K

Hello ladies!

We love our participants! Together, despite a pandemic, we’ve kept the Mother’s Day 5K tradition alive for 17 years!!  For 2021, we are offering two options:

Join us VIRTUALLY whenever and wherever it work for you
Join us IN-PERSON on Sunday, May 9 at 8 am in Corporate Woods

Every entrant gets our women’s-cut tee with its vibrant, playful design — and a “bee positive” finisher charm!

Of course we’ve had to make changes to hold the In-Person event safely. Mask wearing and social distancing are required. We’ll have a staggered wave start– more details to come. Post-race food will be packaged in grab-and-go bags. We won’t have a Family Fun Area or Selfie Tent this year. We’ve capped the in-person event at 400 entrants — and, sorry, no spectators.  Check our comprehensive safety plan HERE.

Whether you join us in-person or connect with us virtually, we hope you will continue to share the fun, festive MD5K we love!



Spring 2021

MD5K is famous for cute, colorful t-shirts, always featuring a daisy-type flower. Work on our design begins months in advance. This past winter, when things seemed pretty grim in the world, we decided we needed an uplifting, optimistic design in the colors of sunshine and spring. Girlfriends, we nailed it! (Thanks to artist Jane Smeltzer in cahoots with graphic designer Lori Barnes!!)

Meet Jane Smeltzer, our multi-talented t-shirt artist!

Jane has many interests and skills — cooking, knitting, music, hiking, biking, swimming, travel — and she worked in finance and accounting in a past life. Though her flair for design is a relatively new passion, we think it’s her SUPERPOWER! Her artwork is always playful, joyful and colorful — and has been featured on the MD5K t-shirts seven times!
