2020 Class of BAMRbassadors


As much as BAMRs*-in-Chief Sarah and Dimity wish they could travel non-stop, spreading the AMR word and connecting with other mother runners, their families might miss them.

So in 2018, the duo began anointing BAMRbassadors: As the mashup name implies, these 100+ gals are badass mother runner ambassadors who introduce female runners to the power and assets of the Another Mother Runner Tribe.

The duties of BAMRbassadors vary from staffing an AMR expo booth to testing gear but one thing is for sure: BAMRbassadors are passionate about helping as many women as possible enjoy many happy miles.
