What do our ambassadors do? 

The USA Triathlon Foundation Ambassador Team powered by Newton Running is a team of dedicated individuals who are committed to raising awareness for the mission of the USA Triathlon Foundation which is transforming lives through mutlisport by providing opportunities to swim, bike, and run for all. Our Ambassadors are passionate about the sport of triathlon and work to giveback to the sport that has given them so much. 

Ambassadors participate in outreach activities that support one of the Foundation’s three key focus areas: encouraging every child to participate; inspiring every paratriathlete to compete; and igniting young athletes’ dreams of competing at the Olympic or Paralympic Games.

Throughout the triathlon season, ambassadors will also share the mission and vision of the Foundation through personal stories on their social media channels and in multisport-focused media outlets.

Want to be apart of the Team? 

Applications for the 2021 Ambassador Team will open October 19th and will be open till November 2nd. Check out what we ask of our ambassadors and what you get in return!
