The purpose of the Ambler Area Running Club is to develop and promote local running and racing, to provide running-related information and social activities, and to enhance training opportunities in a supportive atmosphere for runners of all abilities. AARC provides these activities in a way that promotes the well-being of the community.

Fireside Frostbite 5-Miler

Saturday February 18, 2017

Call for Volunteers!

The Fireside Frostbite 5-Miler needs YOUR help!

We are looking for volunteers for our Fireside Frostbite 5 Miler on Saturday morning, February 18th.  There are limited opportunities to sign up for some tasks that DON'T interfere with the race.  For those of you who are running but still want to volunteer and race, sign up soon because those tasks will go quickly!  Please keep in mind that our greatest need is always for help with parking and course marshals on race day, so if you can help with that, it would be appreciated.

AARC volunteers (who have paid up AARC memberships through March 2017) receive a limited edition AARC hat! 


The club's Spring General Meeting will be Wednesday night, March 29, at the Upper Dublin Township Building.  All members and non-members are welcome to attend!

General Elections will be held.  The club needs YOUR help!  If you are interested in running for one of the positions (President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, or one of three Member-At-Large positions), please e-mail Jeff at president@aarclub.com.

THANK YOU! for running the 2016 Phil's Tavern Quarter Marathon
