CHALLENGEDAYTONA invites passionate multi-sport athletes from around the world to apply for the 2019 CHALLENGEDAYTONA Ambassador Team. The individuals selected will serve as emissaries and educators for the CHALLENGEDAYTONA Triathlon Festival, slated for December 13-15, 2019.
The inaugural CHALLENGEDAYTONA, dubbed “Best New Race of 2018” by Triathlete Magazine, enjoyed enthusiastic support from a nine-person local ambassador team. In 2019, the team will go global in an effort to spread the word of this exciting new event far and wide.
“Our ambassadors are the heart and soul of our event,” says Bill Christy, executive producer of CHALLENGEDAYTONA. “We rely on them to help identify what really matters to participants, and in turn we implement these features into the race. Our ambassadors are also instrumental in creating a grassroots groundswell around CHALLENGEDAYTONA. On top of that, they’re exceptional people—the kind you absolutely want by your side on race day.”
The 2019 CHALLENGEDAYTONA Ambassador Team will expand both in number and in reach, welcoming members from triathlon communities worldwide. Ambassadors will enjoy numerous benefits, including entry into the CHALLENGEDAYTONA race of their choice, a custom race kit from Veneto Sportswear, a custom podium shirt, a generous welcome package, and the opportunity to win prizes throughout the year. In turn, team members will be expected to serve as passionate, positive ambassadors for CHALLENGEDAYTONA and for endurance sports at large. Their participation on the team will involve significant grassroots community outreach and social media engagement in order to encourage others to #BeAPart of the unique CHALLENGEDAYTONA experience.
Applications for the CHALLENGEDAYTONA Ambassador Team are open now through March 31, 2019. Applicants are asked to submit video and written components that creatively convey their desire to serve as event ambassadors. More information and application instructions may be found at challenge-daytona.com/ambassador-program.
The CHALLENGEDAYTONA Triathlon Festival weekend includes the exciting new Daytona Distance Under the Lights professional race, Sprint and Middle Distance Triathlons, the Junior Challenge kids’ race, Relay categories, Duathlon and Aquabike events, and 5K/10K run/walk events.
