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 an AARC member prior to competing in any of the races.

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 2019's events can be found below.

Why enter? To complete against the other running clubs in the area.  2017 was the first year the Ambler Area Running Club entered the competition, and we finished in 8th place out of 13 teams.  In 2018 we finished 9th out of 26 teams.

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.
