The AAEM18 Fun Run is part of the committee's initiative to bring physical wellness practices to the annual conference. 

*You must be registered to attend AAEM18 in order to register for the fun run. You will be required to fill out a liability waiver in order to participate in this event.


Helpful Tips to Get On Your Mark for the Fun Run and Walk:

  1. Register for the 5K when you register for Scientific Assembly – Registration for the 5K is $30, which includes a t-shirt in sizes S-XL (email if you need an extended size). Pick-up your shirt on Sunday at Opening Reception.
  2. Bib me – Look for your bib in your registration packet that can be picked up at the AAEM18 registration desk BEFORE race day.
  3. Have a competitive streak? Only the top five participants will be manually scored for this event. There will be a clock at the finish line for all participants to mark their own finish time.
  4. Need a pick-me-up pre-race? Visit Starbucks®, conveniently located within the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina, for your morning joe. Water stops will be available on the race route and bananas will be provided for an extra boost.
