Time to Shine!
Want to be a part of the race happenings at the Asheville Marathon & Half next year? Then come be an Ambassador for us! We are asking enthusiastic and well-connected runners from around the country and the globe to help spread the word and represent the 2020 edition of the Asheville Marathon & Asheville Half Marathon at Biltmore Estate… and offering awesome incentives to do it!
APPLICATIONS are due by July 16, 2019!
To be considered as a race ambassador you MUST HAVE either volunteered or participated in either the Asheville Half Marathon or Full Marathon at Biltmore Estate previously. Only prior participants in the event will be considered for our ambassador roles.
Ambassadors will serve as race representatives and as part of our consulting team; we will look to them for feedback, tips, and new ideas! Specific Ambassador roles will entail the following:
Distribution of Collateral via Local Channels (e.g. running stores, local races, etc.)
Spreading the word and answering questions about Asheville Marathon & Half events to others in local running clubs, as well as through social media, blogging, and otherwise.
Blogging, Facebook shares and tweeting regularly about upcoming news from the Asheville Marathon & Half.
Participation in the Race Planning Feedback Forums and Surveys (you are our research team to help us better serve the running community!)
Race Weekend support
For their efforts, ambassadors will be recompensed with a variety of rewards. These perks will include complimentary registration, Official Marathon & Half Ambassador Gear, discounts on other events & services, a personal profile hosted on the marathon website, perks from race sponsors, and additional incentives during race weekend, based on involvement… and we are still adding to the list! Additionally, we will open up certain opportunities to our Ambassadors first. These may include pre-race interviews, news stories, merchandise giveaways, Pacer Team invitations, sponsor product giveaways and inclusion in special race weekend happenings.
Throughout human history, one of the most prominent roles of great distance runners was that of messengers. The Asheville Marathon at Biltmore Estate wants to revive that heritage of communication by the fleet of feet with our Ambassador program.
