2019 Video Series


We are looking for a few people (4 or 5) who are willing to be “followed” while training for the Rocket City Marathon … people who have a story to tell. Perhaps it’s your first marathon, or you’re trying to qualify for Boston, or you’re overcoming a health challenge, or perhaps you’re running for charity. Whatever your story may be, tell us with a video why we and others would be interested in following your quest for the finish line.

If you’re selected, here’s what we expect:

  • Social media presence: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, SnapChat … you need to have some existing followers and be willing to have your posts shared on our social media sites.

  • You need to post “regularly” about your marathon journey: a minimum of once every two weeks starting no later than June 1st until January 1, 2020.

  • You need to commit to staying the course. Even if life takes you in a different direction, you will continue to post until January 1.

  • You will not use this platform to SELL anything-your services or your products.

  • You will make video diary entries of some kind at least once every 2 weeks.

  • You agree to be willing to be part of a panel for the pre-race dinner. We haven’t fully decided on this portion yet, but we may have a panel of interesting runners (like you) instead of a guest speaker.

If you’re selected, here’s what you’ll receive:

  • Free entry into the Rocket City Marathon

  • A free RCM training shirt

  • Free entry for you and a guest to the pre-race dinner

To apply:

  • Send us a link to a short video where you tell us …

    • Your motivation for running Rocket City

    • Why others would be interested in following your journey

Please send any inquires or video links to rocketcitymarathon@gmail.com and use the subject line “2019 Video Series".

We look forward to hearing from you.

Finally, if you’re looking for more information regarding the “team for charity,” stay tuned…
