We’re pleased to announce that this year’s Team Running Free Sponsorship program supports almost 200 local runners, triathletes, and adventure athletes. The program was launched in 2004 with only 22 eager athletes. Now in it’s 14th season, Team Running Free continues to support local athletes and and reward their community spirit and dedication to their sports.
Team RF athletes aged 16 to 60 race and volunteer at literally hundreds of events in support of their community. We couldn’t be more of proud seeing all those red Team RF jerseys on race courses and podiums all over the world. What really makes these athletes special is their passion and commitment to inspiring and encouraging competitors to pursue and achieve their goals.
One of the fundamental principals of the Team Running Free program is that it’s not just made up of the fastest of the fast. It brings recreational and competitive athletes of all levels together under the same banner with the purpose not just of winning, but of inspiring and building confidence, both in themselves and others. It is with this outlook that our Team RF program goes forward into 2017. If you would like to apply for Team Running Free 2018, applications are accepted starting September 2018.
