As shelter-at-home orders are in effect across the country and at all of our locations because of COVID-19, Moms on the Run is adapting its programming so our members can stay active and remain a part of our community. We aim to continue our mission, even virtually, of "Fitness, Fun and Friendship." Remember that Moms on the Run is a small business — actually 51 locations independently owned and operated by 31 different business owners. Please continue to support our owners and take a look at the resources we are offering.

Virtual Team Runs and Hangouts
We know that what makes Moms on the Run ultra special is our community. Each team is a family, and we want to continue to be an encouraging and motivating place for our family members — you! Most of our franchise owners are coordinating virtual group runs and video hangouts. This is a critical way to stay together. Here's what a couple of our members are saying:
"It was so much fun connecting with my MOTR family this morning on Zoom. We were able to connect and check in about how we are being active during this time of social distancing. It was a way to hold each other accountable and motivate each other. I can’t wait until we can run together again but being able to connect on Zoom makes this quarantine not seem so bad." - Sarah B
"Today's run was great! The accountability of connecting and warming up together at the beginning was great. During the run I stayed motivated by knowing I needed to make the post run "meet up" online. It was fun to hear how far people went and how they are doing throughout these tricky times. The use of technology was great to still feel connected with this amazing fun group! During times like this it is even more important to keep moving and I'm glad MOTR is getting creative to keep us connected and running! Would rather be in person, but using technology is a close second to the accountability to keep moving." - Rebecca H
