A drizzly start to Mother's Day didn't stop family and friends putting on their pink colours and supporting breast cancer awareness.
The Mother's Day Classic event was held for the first time in Launceston on Sunday - after being held across the nation for 23 years.
"Hobart is the main location in Tasmania, however we really found that there was people up in the northern area of Tasmania ... that just really wanted to be part of this event as well," Mother's Day Classic host Olivia Harding said.

Ms Harding said over the 23-year run, the event had raised almost $38 million for breast cancer research.
"Holding this local is a really great way to have survivors and those going through cancer [raise awareness], as well as their family and friends being able to support them on their journey.
"The event is a great way to bring everyone together and raise awareness for the cause."
Ms Harding said breast cancer was the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia and eight Australians died from it every day.
The Launceston leg of the classic had over 30 participants register to take part.
"We would definitely like to see that grow for next year," Ms Harding said.
"I think it because it hasn't been in Launceston before, and being the first year there hasn't been many registrations."
The event was held at Inveresk Precinct, Invermay, over several hours and was a distance of 5km.
Participant Felix Peel, of Launceston, said the classic was a great cause.
"My mum is in town and she lives quite far away. I thought I'd do the Mother's Day run and then we would get brunch after," he said.
"It was also a good chance to test out my pink shoes."
Mr Peel ran to support two of his friends who had both lost their mother's to cancer.
The day was also a tradition for some like Carla Baker, of Riverside.
"It's Mother's Day, and I used to do it with my mum in Melbourne," she said.
Instead, Ms Baker ran with her daughter Madison, 7, to commemorate the day.
"[The event] is a really important cause to keep supporting," she said.
Health Minister Sarah Courtney said the money raised from the event would support vital breast cancer research.
"In 2021 it is predicted that 20,825 Australian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, which on average is 57 people every day," she said.
"Although we have no way of preventing breast cancer, we can take positive steps as a community by supporting breast cancer research through events such as the Mother's Day Classic."
