Benefits of Joining Athlétisme Ville-Marie
Whether you are a beginner hoping to improve your 5k PB or training for the Canadian Track & Field Trials, working with a coach helps provide the guidance, structure and workouts needed to achieve your goals.
Running is an individual sport but having teammates and coaching provide motivation and support to help you become your best. We take pride in fostering a positive and inclusive team culture at AVM.
Club members are responsible to help with club events. Costs of race registration, lodging & transportation are the responsibility of the members, but may be defrayed by fundraising.
