Following a hugely successful 2nd year, the London Runner Athlete Assistance Program will expand significantly in 2013, thanks in part to the addition of specialty retail sponsor New Balance London, who will work alongside Runners' Choice London, New Balance, and CBI Health in supporting this initiative. Under this program, high performance distance runners receive support, primarily in the form of New Balance shoes and apparel, and financial support for travel. Established in 2011, athletes under this program have earned Canadian or Canadian Junior Championship medals over 1,500m, 5,000m, 10,000m, Half Marathon, and Cross Country, while representing Canada on Track, Cross Country, and Road Running National Teams.
The main round of athlete applications begins immediately, with a December 10th application deadline. As there is room to bring on new athletes in 2013, a second round of athlete applications will be welcome in the spring of 2013. Athletes should contact Steve Weiler directly for further information.
