About Us


What is the AMS 5K?

Known to be a popular community event, the AMS 5K offers a fun family environment including a Stroller Competition and Costume Contest. The fast and challenging 3.1 mile run/walk offers certified timing and large digital clock at the finish and allows all an opportunity to experience the American Martyrs community.

This year we have added an elite category to attract AMS alumni runners and the greater Manhattan Beach running community.

This is a perfect outing if you're a serious runner, or someone looking for a fun-filled activity!
