In 2014, the former London Runner Athlete Assistance Program takes on a new name as the London New Balance Racing Team, or London NB Team for short. Looking to build on the success of 2013, the 2014 Team will benefit from increased support and is an excellent opportunity for post-collegiate athletes who wish to continue competing at a National or International level.
The London NB Team is designed to support National Level distance runners who are committed to work with the London Runner Distance Club in pursuit of achieving their full athletic potential. The program is supported by specialty retail partners Runners’ Choice and New Balance London, in conjunction with New Balance Canada. The London NB Team is the high performance segment of the London Distance Project. There will be a round of athlete applications in the winter, with a December 29th deadline, followed by a second round of applications in the spring.
The 2014 team will be divided into 3 tiers: Developmental, National, and Elite. Depending on the Tier, athletes can receive New Balance shoes and apparel, entry into the London Honda Race Series, and financial support for travel. Interested athletes are to contact Steve Weiler and need to apply by the December 29th deadline.
