Road Warrior Team

Each year, the public is invited to apply to become event ambassadors while training with coaches for the 25K, 10K and 5K  events on the Saturday, May 8!  The Road Warriors are selected by a panel after personal interviews. All Road Warriors represent the Amway River Bank Run at community events and blog on the social media of choice about the ups and downs of training for a long distance road race in Michigan.


Re-Meet the Road Warrior Team, --  Anne Divitto, Becky Vander Zwaag, Cliff Kopp, Gabriele Gottlieb, Jay O'Neal, Jeff Sorensen, Laura Traxler, Sarah Holloway, Shelley Irwin, and Tracy Hixson . Because COVID delayed their actual Race Day experience and ambassadorship, we kept the same team for 2021!  Thanks to Gazelle Sports, official retail partner, for outfitting the Road Warriors in their quest for a successful season!


Join us and get to know the Road Warriors at our Training Events (TBD for 2021 season) -- All of the runs are beginner friendly while we also have different paces to run. This is a great opportunity to meet new people, encourage and motivate others. Come along and bring your friends and family --  free and no registration required - just show up!
