About This Activity

This year, the race celebrates 10 years of supporting the APMA Educational Foundation. Each year, thanks to the generosity of APMA members and friends, the foundation awards more than 200 scholarships to podiatric medical students, advancing the growth and stability of podiatric medicine.
Proceeds from your registration will support student financial aid through the foundation. Scholarships are awarded annually to eligible podiatric medical students in their third or fourth year at the nine accredited colleges of podiatric medicine.
More than 1,700 runners and walkers have participated in the APMA 5K Run/Walk raising more than $166,000 since its inception. Show your support as we celebrate this milestone.​

1) Register for the event. The first 200 participants will receive a limited edition Team APMA 5K Challenge t-shirt. 

2) Choose your course. It can be anywhere (a nearby park, favorite trail, your backyard, even a treadmill) with anyone (social distancing of course).

3) Choose your virtual pace!  Whether you run, walk, jog, or skip, what matters most is that you are supporting APMA. 

4) Celebrate your accomplishment by posting a picture on social media in your race gear with the & hashtag  #TeamAPMA & #IrunWithTeamAPMA. Then submit your race time to the leaderboard. 

Here's the Challenge: Run the Marathon! Break it down into shorter segments and spread it over a week. That's only 3.7 miles per day.
