     Online registration is temporarily closed while we determine the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the race.


We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation as it impacts races and other organized activities in the area. In early June we will determine whether we will be able to hold the race as scheduled, postpone or cancel. At that time we'll provide options if you have already registered. Thank you to all who support AARC, our race sponsors and our annual beneficiaries. Stay safe and please follow the guidance of our state and local governments to help control the outbreak.

The Ambler Area Running Club proudly presents the Phils Tavern Quarter Marathon - a unique race created by runners for the running community. The race course is mostly local roads, with two short sections of flat trails/cross-country grass to keep things fun! We feature flexible registration options. You can pay for the race registration and make a separate optional donation to our 2020 beneficiaries. Proceeds and donations for our 2020 races will be shared by these local charities selected by AARC members: Mattie N.
