All Ambassadors will be featured on The San Francisco Marathon Website. Chosen applicants will have a profile, photo, and opportunity to connect with other runners through social media, meet-up runs, and more! You will have the opportunity to lead and guide new and inexperienced runners through their training process, motivate and inspire our runners, and share your story!

We encourage frequent communication and love to hear about your running goals and accomplishments.

Please note that Ambassadors are NOT financially compensated in any way. We do not subsidize travel or training expenses or issue payment of any kind to our team. The Ambassadors serve for one calendar year, from April to November, though Ambassadors are encouraged to reapply each spring if they wish to continue on future years. The San Francisco Marathon reserves the right to remove any Ambassador from the team at any time due to poor conduct or failure to perform duties.
