About This Activity

Join the Urban Bourbon Half Marathon and Louisville Sports Commission in spreading the word about this year's race on October 22, 2016! We are looking for fitness-focused individuals who are just as excited as we are about Louisville's premiere fall half marathon. Urban Bourbonites will serve as race ambassadors, helping us spread the word about the event and increasing registration numbers both locally and throughout the region.

As an Urban Bourbonite, you will receive some special perks:

  • Complimentary registration into the 2016 Urban Bourbon Half Marathon
  • Official Urban Bourbonite apparel/gear
  • Discount/referral code for friends, family, and marketing purposes
  • Special swag and gift items from our sponsors
  • Featured posts on Urban Bourbon Half Marathon social media pages with bio, social media handles, and other details about you
  • A connection to an amazing group of local and regional runners all working together to make Urban Bourbon Half Marathon the top fall race in the region
  • The person with the best mile (as judged by the Race Director) will receive a special prize

The Urban Bourbonite duties and responsibilities include:

  • Have an outgoing, active personality
  • Portray yourself in person and on social media in a manner that is consistent with the values and principles of the Louisville Sports Commission
  • Wear Urban Bourbon Half Marathon apparel at any races in which you participate
  • Familiarize yourself with all aspects of the race to be able to answer questions from prospective participants, including course, water stops, registration deadlines/pricing, Packet Pick-up, Urban Bourbon Bash, etc.
  • Promote the race via social media with an appropriate message provided by the Louisville Sports Commission team
  • Distribute printed race materials to local gyms, coffee shops, fitness facilities, and other community locations
  • Attend a monthly Ambassador meeting, to be held the first Monday of the month at 5:30p
  • Volunteer for at least one four-hour shift at Packet Pick-up on the Friday before the race
  • Sponsor a mile along the race route, complete with spirit/support teams, music, inspirational posters,  sidewalk chalk, and any other creative methods of motivation
  • Participate in the Urban Bourbon Half Marathon on 10/22/16

Applications will be accepted until the end of February, with a decision on our final Urban Bourbonites in mid-March. If you have any questions about the program, please reach out to our Race Manager Michael Clemons at mclemons@louisvillesports.org or 502-379-6052.
