Who is a DAVE’S RTA?

Affinity for the Dave’s Mission • Leads an Active Lifestyle • Has a No Worries Attitude • Loves People

AMBASSADOR: am·bas·sa·dor, /amˈbasədər/ — noun — defined: an authorized representative or messenger. A person who acts as an official representative or promoter of a specific entity.

REPRESENTATIVE: rep·re·sen·ta·tive, /reprəˈzen(t)ədiv/ — noun — defined: a person chosen or appointed to act or speak on behalf of another’s interests.

We are positive, uplifting, caring, respectful, kind and considerate to everyone. We promote goodwill, and cheer people of all ages and abilities to the finish. We always listen. We answer questions. We motivate people to be passionate with us. We maintain a no worries attitude as our way of being. And most of all we have fun and smile.

Run Toledo’s Ambassadors share and promote healthy lifestyles through the Run Toledo and Dave’s Running Shop brands. They are amateur athletes of varying ages (*21+) and experience levels; ranging from beginners, walkers and casual runners, to seasoned marathoners, triathletes, cyclists, swimmers, hikers and many more.

Being chosen to serve as an official Run Toledo Ambassador is a privilege sought by many, but available spots are limited and are filled by way of staff review. Ambassador terms are one year in length and are re-evaluated each year. Do you have what it takes to represent our running community in a positive, friendly, helpful and insightful way? If so, keep an eye out for your opportunity to join the team. — Get Faster | Go Farther | Feel Better
