Ambler Area Running Club

Welcoming runners of all abilities.


August 19, 2020 Update: Fun Runs are back!

Now that the region entered the Yellow phase we're gradually restarting our organized group runs. Please review and be mindful of the important rules below.

  • At the start of the fun runs we cannot gather at the store entrances. Look for the fun run leader close to the usual location but in another area of the parking lots of both locations. 
  • Face covering of some kind is strongly recommended. Runners should have a mask with them. 
  • Distancing is required, 6’.
  • We typically have fewer than 25 runners, which is the current max for gatherings (but that would be great!), however, if that many show up the fun run leaders will organize the crowd into 2 smaller groups.
  • Fun run leaders will request contact information from runners if we don’t already have it. This is for tracing purposes.
  • Restrooms may not be available, depending on the venue.
  • Coffee / drinks and the usual socializing after the run may not be available, depending on the venue. Coffee to go is recommended at Starbucks. Hillary is checking with Fireside about their availability to accommodate.

Current Fun Run Options:
