To our members, volunteers and partners in 2017

Running is a great way to stay healthy, connect with friends and family, and stay in touch with all that is positive in the world. Our members and volunteers who show up, rain or shine, to help us put on events throughout the year deserve a shout out – we couldn’t do it without you.

The aim of ARR is to stay focused on running in its purest form by sticking to the basics, keeping our events affordable, and encouraging every runner, no matter where they are on their journey.

2017 brought us some interesting challenges as we launched a new website, lost some of our familiar venues, tested new courses, welcomed new members and supported some with health challenges. We look forward to ushering in 2018 with eleven races, social events, the year-long Grand Prix Points Tour, and the popular Summer Series. Thank you for sticking with us – we hope the new year brings a fresh new chapter to your training.
