The AMPT Story
RUN with Heart. GIVE with Purpose.
Has anyone ever asked you what is most important in your life or what inspires you? For the members of AMPT Running Company, the answer is God and family. Without these two things, there wouldn’t be an AMPT Running Company. With divine guidance, AMPT was born out of the joy of engaging in a sport that families and friends can do together in support of special causes. The AMPT team is excited to serve the running community and is committed to helping others in need. Our mission is to provide the best quality race experience for our runners, while raising funds for local charities and Christian missions. The AMPT team has a great relish for the eclectic running community, and invite you to share in the AMPT experience.
