Unfortunately we can't run together as a team, but I would encourage all past team members and anyone else to join the virtual AMA Run Club. This is a great opportunity for families to go out together and be active! Heading out for a run before you start your school work for the day or after lunch would provide a great energy boost for everyone! These unique times have provided many of us with the flexibility to get outside and move during the day, let's take advantage of it!

By registering for the club participants will receive:

  • Weekly emails (to parents) with activities and challenges you can complete at home
  • A 10 week running/walking program that builds up to a 2 or 5 km fun run!
  • Certificate of completion at the end of June and finisher prizes for every participant
  • An entry to win 1 of many Garmin Activity Trackers drawn at the end of June
