Austin Marathon Ambassador Program

Interested in becoming an Ambassador for the 2022 Ascension Seton Austin Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K? Do you like to help and inform runners of all levels? Do you love running and sweet race swag? Then submit your application to the Austin Marathon Ambassador Program today!

The Ambassador program is one of the main driving forces to help promote the 30th annual Ascension Seton Austin Marathon presented by Under Armour. 

As part of the program, you and your fellow Ambassadors are a reflection of the race on and off the course! You’re an extension of the Austin Marathon, helping us keep a finger on the pulse of the latest trends on social media and your own part of the running community. Each Ambassador has their own story to celebrate. We want you to use your strengths to help others to write their own.

We are looking for our Ambassadors to reflect our love and excitement for running and the City of Austin. Being an amazing Ambassador is all about having fun, interacting with the community, and encouraging others – it’s a bonus if they sign up to run in the 2022 Austin Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K. Ambassador applications will be accepted until Friday, August 13th.

What you’ll need:

  • Enthusiasm for the Austin Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K. Of course, the most important part of being an Ambassador is that you’re enthusiastic about the event. If you love to run and love the community that the Austin Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K bring together, then this will be a good fit for you.
  • Good communication skills. Whether you’re online or offline, being able to communicate with potential participants is key. We’ll provide you with the info so you’ll have a good understanding of how to communicate it with future participants.
  • Connections in the community. Having connections in the community is important, but these connections can be gained while working as an ambassador. That means visiting running clubs, running/bike stores, gyms and actively engaging on social media – basically anywhere where you can promote the Austin Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K.
