America's Birthday 5K

America's Birthday Ambassador Program

July 4th, 2019

Applications have been closed for the 2019 America's Birthday 5K event. 

Part of being a race ambassador is not only to represent this fabulous race but to also give us input and spread the word throughout our city about this one-of-a-kind holiday race. As an ambassador, you will help spread the word about the event in your communities, through your social media platforms, and with local running groups. You get out of this ambassador program, what you put into it, so please be sure you have some time and energy to commit to being an ambassador before you click ‘submit’ to say that you accept the offer of being a race ambassador!
