Once again the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon is looking for active bloggers and social media gurus to spread the word about America’s Toughest Road Races™. Bloggers can participate in any of our race distances (for free) including the full marathon, half marathon, double marathon, 10k or four person relay! While we love to hear from uber-competitive athletes, we also love bloggers of all ability levels with inspiring stories, a unique perspective or those that run for a cause.
We are also hoping to reach a wider audience this year, so if you live ~4-7 hours from Roanoke, we may be able to help with transportation costs to make your journey possible. Just include those details in your application below.
- Free race entry to the race of your choice (full, half, double, or 10k)
- Free concert ticket to the Down by Downtown Music Festival (Post Race)
- VIP Runner Pass- Access to library mezzanine overlooking Elmwood Park/Finish Line (private potties, snacks, coffee, beer, etc.)
- SPECIAL GIFT (New for 2018)
- Marathon Swag, exclusive discount codes for your followers & one entry to give away!
- Support from our event manager & race director. Questions? Shoot an email now. 🙂
Deadline for entries is August 20th, 2017, and selected bloggers will be announced by September 10th. If selected, your responsibilities will be to blog once a month until race day, write a post-race review of your experience, host at least one giveaway and interact with us on social media. Have fun with it and we can’t wait to have you join the Blue Ridge Blogging Team!
