#TrailsRoc is an organization dedicated to the growth of trails and trail running in the greater Rochester, NY area. It is with this goal in mind that we formed the #TrailsRoc Ambassador Program.
Every winter we award $500.00 to runners who we believe will represent us well. We ask them to have a big goal race in mind and we will help make that happen. We support them financially, with training, and with encouragement and energy.
In return they wear our shirt at the event they trained for and write us a post race recap. In addition to that we ask them to share their stories with our community and with the world.
We want our hashtag trending. We want our trails out there for the world to see. We want you to tell our story to others and to share in the joy of what we do.
Do you see yourself in this role? Do you think you can represent #TrailsRoc well at a race and online over the course of the year ? The application is below – Let us know your story!
