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.

Registration is Open!


The club has a team participating in the Mid-Atlantic USA Track & Field Club Challenge Grand Prix.  Everyone in the club is welcome to join - you just need to join the USATF as well.  (You can still enter future even if you’ve already registered for them.)

The Club Challenge is a series of 11 events throughout the year in the tri-state area, starting with our Fireside Frostbite 5-Miler and ending with the Philadelphia Half & Full Marathons.  Distances are from 5K to 26.1 miles.  The list of events can be found here: http://mausatf.com/grandprix-events/

Why enter? To complete against the other running clubs in the area.  In 2016 there were 12 clubs from the region that competed.

Cash awards go the fastest clubs! 1st Place $1,200, 2nd $900, 3rd $675, 4th $475, 5th $325, 6th $200, 7th $125, 8th $75, 9th $50, and 10th $50.  Team scores are calculated for the fastest five runners at each event, and the best eight of the eleven events overall.  (We're in 8th place so far!)
