i’d like to share some awesome news!

I have been selected as one of ten Ambassadors for the 2014 ZOOMA Florida Half Marathon & 5K!

ZOOMA Ambassador Badge 2014

I am so excited and so honored to be a part of this great event, and I’m incredibly proud to be sporting the above badge on my sidebar.

The 2014 ZOOMA Florida event will be held on January 18 at the Ritz-Carlton on Amelia Island. It’s a spectacular location, quiet and secluded, full of small town charm and natural beauty. I really can’t think of a better place for a race weekend away. Participants can choose to run a 5K or a half marathon, and then spend the rest of the day enjoying an oceanfront after-party, live music, post-race massages, shopping and recovery yoga. Not only will it be an awesome race weekend for local athletes, it will make for a great girls’ weekend for those traveling from farther away.

While ZOOMA is a women’s race series, dedicated to the empowerment of women (in fact, the series was listed as one of FitSugar’s top  races to run with the girls), males and females are welcome to run and enjoy.

What comes with your registration fee?

  • Entry into an unforgettable, professionally-managed and timed half marathon or 5K race
  • Access to a full weekend of yoga, sponsored cocktail hour, and a Fitness Expo
  • ZOOMA Signature Swag Bag (over $50 value)
  • Water and Cytomax Sports Performance drink on the course
  • Water, Cytomax Sports Performance drink, Muscle Milk Light and food at the finish line
  • GU Energy Gel station along the course
  • Wine from Barefoot Wine & Bubbly at the After-Party Expo
  • Necklace designed exclusively by Satya Jewelry for ZOOMA for all half marathon finishers
  • Post-race massage, shopping and live music at the ZOOMA After-Party Expo

I am ecstatic to have this half marathon on my race calendar and I hope you’re as excited as I am!

  23. This is so exciting- how did you apply to be an ambassador? That is something I’d be super interested in for maybe 2015. If I can get a free race reg. and promote my favorite thing- running- that is SUCH a win!

      Some of the big and/or specialty races announce an application process several months to a year prior. If there’s a race you love, maybe try emailing the organizer and seeing if they have an ambassador program or would be interested in starting one. You could get in on the ground floor!
