2020 Ambassador Program

Interested in being a race ambassador for one of our races?

If you are ready for a fun marketing experience, and if you find joy in helping others reach their fitness goals, this is a great opportunity for you!  Whether you’re a runner or a walker, there are many perks to joining the ambassador program.  The AMPT team relies on word-of-mouth marketing as one way to spread the word about this race and the worthwhile cause that it supports. By using Ambassadors, we can reach a larger audience and encourage more people to participate and support the cause.

As an ambassador, you will be our number one-fans, our inspiration spreaders and local motivators.  No matter if you’re a daily runner, first time 5K’er or seasoned marathoner, we want to work with you.  In order to make this mutually wonderful for you and for the race, we do have some expectations of our race ambassadors.  In return you will be a part of a network of awesome running fans, get super cool race swag, and free race entries! You get out of the ambassador program what you put into it, so please be sure you have some time and energy to commit before you apply.

AMPT Running will provide the collateral for distribution.

  • BRAND Ambassadors are expected to meet the above requirements for all events in 2020.

Apply to Become a Brand or Race Ambassador!

We’re not looking for people that “have it all.” We’re looking for a variety of different folks- young, old, slow, fast, close to Dallas and far away. We want people that are broadcasting to different online channels and to their own local running groups. So just because you’re not on Instagram or Snapchat, or whatever the latest social platform is, doesn’t mean we don’t want you!
