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 small group of elite distance runners from the UK. 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 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!

Through our website, we’ll share our journey as a team in the world of elite athletics, keep you updated on our activities, and share some useful nuggets of information regarding coaching, training philosophies, our favourite New Balance gear, and much much more! To see our journey so far, have a look at our blog page and stay tuned for more in the future!
