Ambassador Team

2018 Colfax Ambassador Team APPLICATION – CLOSES August 11th

You have seen them all year around the state and country … a group of people excited to talk about running, getting active, and all things Colfax Marathon! Last year, they hosted almost 40 fun training runs at stores and breweries, where they gave away prizes and talking all over social media about the 7 Colfax Marathon races.

Denver’s Colfax Marathon had almost 20,000 runners for the 2017 race weekend and over 35,000 people came through the Expo. Colfax is a non-profit and gave almost $100,000 to other non-profits just in 2017!

Now you have a chance at being part of the 2018 Colfax Marathon Ambassador Team! Be part of the group that promotes the event through social media, participating in local run groups, helping one or more of our 200+ charity partners, creating short videos to share, providing photos of being active to use in promotions, and be part of the Health and Fitness Expo, to keep the Colfax Marathon brand active in the running community.

We aren’t just looking for podium finishers, we are looking for positive and enthusiastic runners that represent the running community at it’s finest! We will close the application on August 11th and spend days combing through all of them to announce the team on August 15th.
