Ambassador Bio's

New Ambassadors
We would like to receive a brief introductory bio about yourself to share with the Cap10K community. Everyone has a unique story about how they got into running or walking and what motivates or inspires them to get out the door each day. No pressure, keep it simple and make it about 2-3 sentences.

Idea starters:
  • I started running our walking when…, because I wanted to… or it makes me feel…
  • Now, I run and walk for fun, competition, social group, my health, my family.
  • I look forward to attending races for the travel, the competition, the swag, the route, the camaraderie.

Registration Referral Program - NEW

Program

We know you guys are out in the community working hard to spread the word about Cap10K and now we want to give you a little extra umph! Starting in January and running thru race weekend each ambassador will receive set of business cards with a discount code to share. Each Ambassador’s code will be unique and at the end of the season, we will choose two winners with the most new runner registrations. The winners will receive a new pair of shoes (prize value $125).

Rules & Restrictions

  • Referral Card must be hand delivered. Cards provided by Cap10K.
  • Please do not share codes on social media. We want the discount to be a face-to-face experience with future participants in our communities. Please do not email the code either.
  • Each Ambassador will receive two codes. The code will be the Ambassador’s first name and the discount amount (ex. Susan24$5).
  • The first code has a value of $5 off race registration and can be used unlimited times.
  • The second code has a value of $10 off race registration and can be used up to 3 times. Ambassadors will need to keep up with the number of $10 codes handed out. The code will not work on the 4th attempt.
  • A ‘New Runner’ is classified as someone that has never participated in the Cap10K.
  • All codes expire on 4/6/24 at 4:00 p.m. CST.
  • Code is not valid on additional merchandise purchases, iTAB, shipping or Runner Protection Plan.
  • Cards handed out at the Coffee House Tour event with Praxis Coffee on 1/20/24.

We don’t have an infinite number of cards for everyone so please be mindful and strategic about handing out each card, treat it like you would your personal business card.

Upcoming Events

We have comp entries for the upcoming races, and we’d love for you all to attend. The easiest process for me to keep track of all this is for you to RSVP in the google form for each event. I will send comp codes to ambassadors once I receive their RSVP.
