ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Maui Marathon is looking for a broad range of fun and passionate runners and walkers to participate in our first Ambassador program. This can be anyone-from competitive athletes to beginners just starting their fitness journey. An Ambassador positively impacts their community by training and competing with integrity and aloha. Ambassadors are the face of the marathon and help spread the word about Hawaii’s oldest race event either in person or on social media outlets.
