2021 Blue Ridge Ambassador Application

2021 Blue Ridge Ambassador Application

Once again the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon is looking for ambassadors and social media influencers to spread the word about America’s Toughest Road Races™. Ambassadors can participate in any of our race distances (for free) including the full marathon, half marathon, double marathon, 10k or four person relay! While we love to hear from competitive athletes, we also love story-tellers of all ability levels who like to share their stories on social media.

We are also hoping to reach a wider audience, so if you live ~4-7 hours from Roanoke, we may be able to help with transportation costs to make your journey possible. Just include those details in your application below. Only influencers with a following of 5,000 or more will be considered for fees or travel reimbursement.


  • Free race entry to the race of your choice (full, half, double, or 10k)
  • Free concert ticket to the Down by Downtown Music Festival (if applicable- format for this event may be changing)
  • VIP Runner Pass- Access to library mezzanine overlooking Elmwood Park/Finish Line on Saturday only (private potties, snacks, coffee, beer, etc.)
  • Marathon Swag for yourself and to give away
  • Exclusive discount codes for your followers & one entry to give away!
  • Top performing male & female ambassador each win an entire running outfit with shoes thanks to Fleet Feet Roanoke and Altra Running.
  • 50% off our virtual training program and Sunday Slow-K fun run.
  • Support from our event manager & race director. Questions? Shoot an email now. 🙂

Deadline for entries is July 15, 2020, and selected bloggers will be announced by August 31. If selected, your responsibilities will include things like regular posting to social media, engaging with the brand across all platforms, blogs and vlogs where applicable, and hosting mini-events in your region.
