2012 Invited Athlete Profiles (2013 Invited Runner profiles anticipated February, 2013)

The goal of our Invited Runners Program is to promote and support hard-working, talented, dedicated runners, who may be holding down full-time jobs, but who are also dedicated to spirited competition and pursuing the highest level of achievement in their sport.

Our strive to to bring together groups of men and women who are evenly matched in their running credentials, in order to provide close and entertaining competition and to push our Invited Runners to their highest level of performance. We do not actively seek to find international athletes, but concentrate our efforts on identifying and promoting up-and-coming American runners.
