I am a race ambassador for the Love Run Half Marathon coming up on Sunday, April 10 and I have to tell you…it has been an amazing experience!
It’s Tuesdays on the Run with Marcia, Erika, and Patty. This week we’re talking about dream brand sponsorships and ambassadorships. I’ve been blessed to be selected for a few race ambassadorships this year like the ZOOMA and Rock ‘N Roll Race Series and I thought it would be a great opportunity to tell you what it’s really like!
Today I’m going to focus on my very first gig that happened this year – Race Ambassador for the Love Run Half Marathon!How's life as a Race Ambassador? Let me tell you! #runchat #bibchat #totr Click To Tweet
This year, I have been fortunate to be selected as a race ambassador, which honestly is a dream come true for me. It is one of the best ways to really show your passion for running and to encourage others to get out there!
If you’re not a race ambassador, you may wonder what all the fuss about. How much work is involved? Is there a lot of pressure to hit your milestones? What do you get out of it? Let me share what I’ve learned as part of my experience, most particularly with the Love Run Half Marathon!

Being a race ambassador is awesome, but you actually do have do put forth some effort to be successful! Here are the general expectations for being a race ambassadors:
Of course, this isn’t always easy when you have several other ambassadors doing the exact same thing. With the Love Run Half Marathon in Philly, there was definitely some competition involved with sharing your unique code fast enough. This is why I tried my best to use blogging Facebook groups to help to share my posts, images, and discount code.
So what do you get out of all of this hard work? It varies depending on the program, but you really get a LOT. I’m so grateful to have received so many perks!
So with all that said, you may be wondering how the HECK do you get selected to be a race ambassador? I was in the same boat a year ago, and now I’m proud to be able to represent not only the Love Run but a couple other races this year! If I can do it, you can too!
