#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 ran the #TrailsRoc Ambassador Program from 2014 to 2019.
Every winter we awarded $500.00 to runners who we believed would represent us well. We asked them to have a big goal race in mind and we would help make that happen. We supported them financially, with training, and with encouragement and energy.
In return they wore our shirt at the event they trained for and wrote us a post race recap. In addition to that we asked them to share their stories with our community and with the world.
The ambassador program has produced many great stories, here are a few.
