You only need to watch a few minutes of a marathon to learn, runners are a passionate group of people. Whatever their split-time, size or story, runners are the ones who’ve decided to get out of bed, get moving and get after it.

The Novant Health Charlotte Marathon will put together a select team of runners to serve as ambassadors throughout 2019. We search for go-getters who are skilled at bringing people together and motivating others towards a common goal. The majority of people who’ve run our races say that it was because a friend or family member encouraged them to try. That’s why our ambassadors are so important. Often all it takes is the right person to change someone’s thoughts from, “Never!” to “Why not me?” These lovely men and women are here to help you get across that finish line on 11/19!


Think you have what it takes to be a Novant Health Charlotte Marathon Ambassador? Whether you’ve run 100 ultra marathons or are looking to train for your first 5K, we want to hear from YOU!

What makes Charlotte awesome is the diversity. Most of us have moved here from somewhere else (Do you know anyone from Charlotte?) and we’ve all brought different backgrounds and experiences to our city and our running community. We want our Ambassadors to represent this diversity and we want our race to be just as colorful as our city.

I won’t spill all the beans now, but one change to the Ambassador Program this year is that you will split into teams to specifically target one of the following groups:

  • Teams & Corporate Groups
  • Run Clubs & Run Clubs
  • Kids Programs
  • Neighborhood Associations
  • Charity Groups

If you’ve gotten all the way to this point you’re probably a runner that loves Charlotte and wants to make your mark on the running community.
