I should possibly be keeping this quiet in the hope that it will aid my own application but it’s too good an opportunity to miss. Altra are looking for potential Ambassadors, to run in their shoes:
“Are you a dedicated runner, adventurer, ultramarathoner or triathlete who sees sport as a lifestyle, not just a hobby or an event?
If so, we invite you to apply for the 2015 Altra Athlete Ambassador program. We will be selecting about 50 total ambassadors for the coming year. These will fall into 3 categories – Road Running, Trail/Ultra Running and Triathlon.”
They are looking for athletes who are:
- Authentic. Our ambassadors are the inspirational storytellers for our brand. That’s why our ambassadors will be highly motivated, enthusiastic self-starters who will validate Altra through their daily lives, sport, and community. Fast or slow, it doesn’t matter, athletes of all levels are encouraged to apply.
- Passionate. Our ambassadors thrive in training and racing environments. They’re also passionate about Altra, and are excited to tell people about the benefits of our products. Social activity online and in person is important, as is loyalty to the brand and passion.
- Involved. We’re looking for athletes who do more than seek to achieve their own PRs or goals – they’re active in the endurance sports community, whether through coaching, clubs, social media, blogs, forums and/or other outlets.
“I have found it to be the perfect shoe for longer distances. Zero drop, with a spacious toe box and just enough cushioning to be comfortable but not so much as to detract too much from ground feel“
