frequently asked questions
Why should I participate in the ambassador program?
In addition to joining an awesome team of ambassadors and serving as a leader on campus, selected ambassadors will receive complimentary race registration and other perks along the way.
How big of a time commitment is the program?
Ambassadors will be asked to attend three virtual meetings during the spring semester, participate in three virtual Longhorn Run training events and participate in the virtual Longhorn Run 2021. Outside of these commitments, there will be various outreach-related items that you will be asked to assist with in your own time. All required tasks can be completed virtually, but there may be additional “encouraged” in-person opportunities if you are living in Austin this semester.
Do I have to be in Austin to be an ambassador?
Ambassadors do not need to be living locally in Austin to be in the program this year. Due to the nature of the Spring semester on campus and because Longhorn Run 2021 is a virtual race, ambassadors can complete most tasks virtually. However, there may be various safe, in-person opportunities for ambassadors to assist with Longhorn Run outreach efforts.
