“The IRONMAN Foundation and Newton Running have always been associated with positively influencing the triathlon community,” says David Deschenes, Executive Director of The IRONMAN Foundation. “Athletes selected for the IMF-NR Ambassador Team will have an amazing platform from which to support and share the mission of both The IRONMAN Foundation and Newton Running through helping others.”

The IRONMAN Foundation and Newton Running – the Official Footwear of IRONMAN in the U.S. as well as the Official Run Course Sponsor of select IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 races in North America – share a common goal of enhancing the IRONMAN race communities by supporting local charitable initiatives. Members of the IMF-NR Ambassador Team will exemplify what it means to race for the greater good by giving back within IRONMAN race communities.

IMF-NR Ambassador Team members are required to participate in either IRONMAN Texas, IRONMAN Boulder 70.3, or IRONMAN Chattanooga during the 2015 season, as well as volunteer their time prior to race day for philanthropic opportunities at these designated race sites to positively impact the race communities.
