We thought a good way to launch our new website was to give a brief introduction to the team and what we are about.

Team New Balance Manchester is a professional running team based in South Manchester under the guidance of coach Steve Vernon. The team comprises of a group of seven elite distance runners from both the UK and Europe. We are one of only a few professional running teams based in the UK and are fortunate to have amazing support from New Balance to help us reach and compete at the very highest level of international athletics.

Between all of us on the team (coach included!), we have a great deal of British (and Dutch) vests from various events ranging from the Olympics, World and European Track Championships, World and European Cross Country Championships, Road Races and even Mountain Running. Over the next few years, with some hard work, team work, dedication and a professional, positive attitude we hope to build on this, pick some medals up along the way, and enjoy our journeys as elite athletes!

Over the coming weeks and months we will keep you updated on the activities of the team along with some of our favourite running routes, training sessions, coffee shops, New Balance gear, and much more! The next post will feature the New Balance Athlete Summit which is being held at Glenridding in the Lake District this coming weekend. The summit provides the opportunity for New Balance athletes from across the UK and Europe to meet each other, explore some of the beautiful Lake District and celebrate another very successful season for New Balance athletes.
