On Tuesday September 16th at 5:30pm, the London Runner Distance Club will be hosting its 4th Annual Cross Country Runathon at Gibbons Park. This year will be extra special as the runathon is being held in conjunction with the Bring Your Friend to Workout, which means lots more people, more miles run and more money raised!
The New Balance team will be there with a tent and shoes for everyone to try on. So let’s get excited and busy working on sponsorship to make this year the best yet!
As with any major fundraising event, individual athlete fundraising will be tracked and 50% will be earmarked for their individual out-of-province travel. For athletes running the Canadian Cross Country Championships in Vancouver, this is a key fundraiser that can help to offset travel costs.
Athletes can collect pledges using the form available for download here: http://www.londonrunner.ca/page.php?content=2014PledgeForm
Runners can also collect pledges online by directing friends and family to the event confirmation page, where they can pledge to a participant by clicking on their name.
We have some great prizes for the top fundraisers for this event!
Any individual donating over $50 gets a 1500m Night paperweight ($25 value),
Top 3 fundraisers over $250 get New Balance apparel prize packs (4 pieces: t-shirt, short, pant/capri, top/jacket),
Top 2 fundraisers get prize pack + pair of New Balance shoes!
