2 opportunities to try some miles as an ASA WINGMAN!

The Ward YMCA – Abingdon – Come try 1 mile with ASA on Wednesday, March 27th. 
* You can arrive anytime between 5 & 6:15 PM to get checked in.
* You will then get paired with an ASA Athlete and Wingman and go for a 1 mile run to learn how to push the jogger and experience what it is like to be an ASA Wingman.


Join us this Spring at a Group Training Run with our Harford County Community.  We are hosting an Open House night on Wednesday, April 3rd.
* We run a 5K as teams – each team consists of 1 Captain, 2 Wingmen, 1 ASA Athlete, and 1-2 guests. 
* Your Captain for the night will introduce you to your teammates. 
* You will have an opportunity to push the jogger and get the full experience of being a Wingman!  

You can preregister for either of these options on the sign up genius in one of the GUEST spots for the YMCA Night or the Try 3 Miles Open House date.  You are welcome to bring others with you even if they don’t have time to pre-register.  We can sign them up on site.

If the Open House date doesn’t work for you, register as a GUEST for any group run date that fits your schedule best!


Location: Harford Community College
We will park at the ballfields parking lot, “W Lot” off Graduate Drive (between the ballfields and Wawa).

1st & 3rd Wednesdays 6 PM
4th Saturdays 8:30 AM

Wingman Teams work together to provide encouragement and physical support to help ASA Athletes experience the joy and thrill of participation in group runs and mainstream races.


ASA Wingmen  are volunteer runners who lend their hearts and legs to empower ASA Athletes to cross the finish line.

Wingmen can be new or experienced runners, fast or slow, young or old, and don’t need experience with individuals living with disabilities. When you become a Wingman, you commit to: 

  • Fundraise $365 per Year
  • Attend 1 Group Run each Month
  • Participate in 3 races per year – ASA commits to providing every Wingman 3 free races a year: the ASA RunFest (spring) and two others of your choice assigned through the Wish List process for the Summer (1) and Fall (1) seasons.
  • Cover Your Own Race Registration Fees & Travel Expenses


ASA Athletes are individuals with limited mobility who desire to race, but cannot do so on their own. 

Athletes require wheelchairs or the use of assisted mobility devices in and/or outside their homes. When you become an Athlete, you commit to: 

  • Attend 1 Group Run each Month
  • Participate in 6 Races per Year
  • Live in or near an ASA Community
