Los Angeles Marathon Ambassador Program

The Los Angeles Marathon Ambassador team helps inspire our community of runners, walkers, and fitness enthusiasts. They encourage beginner athletes, celebrate long-time participants, and tell the story of the Los Angeles Marathon through the eyes of the race and the participants. They are engaged in their communities through social media and at local events and are actively involved throughout race weekend.

Do you love the Los Angeles Marathon and the neighborhoods we run through? Are you active with local run/walk/fitness clubs and charities? Do you cheer on other runners at the finish line and volunteer at races when you can’t run? Do you represent a special type of athlete or community?

We are looking for runners and walkers of all levels, paces, and backgrounds to help us spread the word about the Los Angeles Marathon.
