Ambassadors

runDallas is launching its first-ever Ambassador Program for the BMW Dallas Marathon Weekend! We are seeking enthusiastic runners who are familiar with or excited about promoting the 2019-2020 (our 50th anniversary) BMW Dallas Marathon Weekend and who identify with our mission of “promoting health and physical fitness through running events and related activities.” Our community of enthusiastic runners is always growing, and we want you to help us spread reliable information, promote health, and inspire individuals to reach their goals. Our 2019-2020 Ambassadors will be an extension of the runDallas family, and we can’t wait to meet you!

*We are no longer accepting ambassador applications for 2020. Please stay tuned for opportunities to apply for 2021 in the summer of 2020.
