Snohomish Running Company is seeking enthusiastic and motivational people to join our current ambassadors in 2020. As an ambassador, you will receive exclusive perks and be a trusted part of the Snohomish Running Company. Ambassadors are a vital marketing and volunteer resource for the Snohomish Running Company. In return, SRC will advertise and promote your personal blog, articles, etc. to our participants.
As with any position and title, there are requirements. (Remember, there are perks, too!)
The first requirement is that you are passionate about health and fitness. Our motto is “Keep moving forward.” There is no minimum pace per mile requirement or number of finish lines—it’s about promoting a healthy, active lifestyle and enjoying it with those around us. Our tag line is “a premium running experience” and that is what we strive to give each participant from the moment they register for a race to the moment they leave the finish line area.
Secondly, you will be a trusted part of the team on race weekends. While you are not required to be at all races throughout the year, we respectfully ask that be transparent with your schedule and make SRC events a priority when possible. We rely on the ambassadors to help with packet pickup days and handle more than the average volunteer.
Ambassadors are responsible to schedule and lead a minimum of two group runs/events in your area that is open to the public. These might be a course preview run, one of your favorite routes, or a group bootcamp class. Sarah Maxwell will help you plan and promote these dates.
Lastly, you will be required to write about the SRC races you participate in within the week of the event. You can do this on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or your personal blog shared to one of these platforms. Be creative: tell a story, make a video, or share a memory; invite the people in your life to share a race day with us.
Finally, the perks: first, you can choose two SRC races to run for free! Also, you will receive exclusive SRC apparel and be eligible for significant discounts from our sponsors and vendors.
Next, you will have your own discount code for all the races to entice people to register for SRC races. You earn points based on how many participants use your code while registering throughout the year. 1 point = $1. These points may be used on SRC events or one of our sponsor’s products. (Coupon codes will be valid after the first price increase.)
We will feature you and your blog on our website. There is a dedicated page for ambassadors on the SRC site, and we are always willing to share important, helpful, fun links and stories on our social media platforms.
If you are excited about being a Snohomish Running Company ambassador for 2020, then email Sarah Maxwell at firstname.lastname@example.org by Saturday, December 7th. Please include why you are interested in the position, how you would be able to contribute as an ambassador, and a brief summary of yourself. We want to get to know you and why running is part of your journey. We will notify all applicants of their status the week of Dec. 16th.
