Annual Mother's Day Run for Charity in Reno | Moms on the Run

Pinocchio's Moms on the Run - 22nd Annual





Late online registration is now available. This will allow participants to register and pay with the convenience of your computer or phone. You will then only have to pick-up from bib when you come to packet pickup on Saturday, May 7th between 9 AM to 5 PM at Reno High School Foster Field Parking Lot.

Manual LATE registration will also be available at Packet Pickup Saturday, May 7th 9-5 at Reno High School Foster Field for manual registration as usual. Written registration forms will need to be completed at that time. Brochures/forms will be available. 

Late Registered 5K & 10K Runners will need to pick-up their numbered bibs (for timing) at the LATE REGISTRATION table. Walkers should pick up their un-numbered bib at the regular PRE-REGISTERED tables.

No new teams can be created for packet pick-up at this time. Existing teams will not be able to add new members as the team lists for collective packet pickup will not include any added late registrations. It does take some time and effect to put together over ahundred team packets, bibs, and T-shirts. Late team registrations can still participate in all other activities with their teams.

7:00-8:30 A.M.


Additional parking is available at Reno High School and parking attendants will direct vehicles to the convenient parking area. Plan to arrive early to snag a good parking spot!

The direction of the start of the race is aimed to make leaving the area after the race as quickly and easily as possible. 

At 8:30 All participants are asked to move on to Foster Dr. behind the STARTLINE facing EAST. 5K and 10K RUNNERS should gather near the front right behind the STARTLINE (facing east).  5K Walk and Talkers should gather in the back of the crowd behind the runners.

  • Nonparticipants and spectators should keep to the sides of Foster Dr.
  • No dogs are allowed in any of the events.
  • Runners must wear their bib numbers on the front. Race Marshalls must be able to see numbers and colors to direct participants correctly.

Participants in the 5K and 10K Runs MUST have a numbered bib to cross the 5K & 10K finishline. Only numbered bibs will have the timing chip attached to them. Do not remove the foam adhesive at any time. Registered 5K & 10K participants wishing to change the event in which will participate can do so at Packet Pickup on Saturday before Mother’s Day. If a 5K or 10K participant wishes to walk instead of run on race day, no notification is required, just use the walkers finishline.

When finishing the race, runners are asked to continue to move down the chute. Please don't stop in the Finishers Chute. Please don’t go back through the finisher chute again to be with a family member or friend. Times will be available online via QR Reader apps for immediate results and posted on the Reno High snack bar building wall. Results will also be available on the Moms on the Run website the week following the race.


9:00 A.M.      10K & 5K RUN

10K & 5K runners should position themselves on Foster Dr. behind the STARTLINE facing EAST and according to their expected pace per mile adjacent to the pace signs from 6 mins to 12 mins.


9:05  A.M.      5K WALK 'N TALK

The 5K Walk'n Talk is for walkers only and is not a timed event. Participants should gather on Foster Dr. behind the 5K & 10K runners, separated by a rope and WALKER signage. The separation by ropes is to prevent walkers from getting in front of runners and forcing the runners to run around walkers and strollers. Walkers will travel east to the end of Foster Dr. and will turn left at Booth St. and proceed along the course by the Truckee River. Registered Kidlets are encouraged to join parents on the 5K walk also.

11:00-ish A.M.      ¼ MILE RUN, KIDLET'S RACE

For children under age 10, this run will be one time around the track and is not a timed event. Ribbons will be awarded to all entrants.
