Class of 2021 BAMRbassadors

As much as BAMRs-in-Chief Sarah and Dimity wish they could spread the AMR word and connect with other mother runners, traveling isn't an option now. And when it is again, their families (or at least their respective dogs!) would miss them too much!

So in 2018, the duo began anointing BAMRbassadors: As the mashup name implies, these now-one-shy-of-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 offering encouragement in Train Like a Mother Club Facebook groups to testing gear but one thing is for sure: BAMRbassadors are passionate about helping as many women as possible enjoy many happy miles.

We thank everyone who applied to be a BAMRbassador in 2021 and appreciate all that you do to spread the Mother Runner love around the world.
