May’s All About Mom

Parkrun M Day

Maybe she’s your parkrunning bud; maybe she’s your biggest cheerleader; maybe she always has a hearty weekend breakfast ready for you after each parkrun. No matter how your mom makes everything that much better, this month is all about her. And MRP Sport has the perfect way to celebrate the crown-rocking queens we call mom.


Make her May with a gift that’ll warm the cockles of her heart and warm her winter weekends… a Maxed Terrain sleeveless puffer jacket. Pair her new puffer with a FREE scarf (valued at R89,99), and give to her this Mom’s Day with a giant hug. And whenever she enjoys a quiet cuppa or a weekend amble in her jacket and scarf, she’ll think of you. What more could you ask for?
