ASA WINGMAN

It takes a big team to support our ASA Athletes and empower them to cross the finish line. Wingmen are the runners who volunteer their legs and hearts to help achieve an ASA Athlete’s goal of participating in mainstream running events. Wingmen also raise funds and awareness about our program, so that more ASA Athletes can cross the finish line.

Interested in learning more about our program and becoming a Wingman for the first time?

ATTENTION WINGMAN PROGRAM PARTICIPANTS:

It has been brought to our attention that many of you are not receiving important group run and racing information emails and are missing important RSVP deadlines.

We believe the issue is that our asa.run email addresses are going directly to your spam/junk folders.

To fix this: go to your spam folder, find an asa.run email from us, and select to unspam ALL asa.run emails (not just that one email).

Additionally, if you unsubscribed from our monthly program newsletters, please click below to resubscribe to our newsletters so you can receive all the program information.

Thank you,
The ASA Team
