RUNNING FOR ECAC

“I felt really honored to run for ECAC, you feel so special running in your red project vest. To run the shootout with my own name on the bib representing my own club at a race they host was amazing! The opportunities, management, watches and support they gave throughout the year is something I would not have got if I went on my own mission this year.”

2017 GOALS

“I just want to go out there and break my pb, push my limits, reach the top and make my way to nationals as I head to USA next year. And then try and fight for that podium finish at nationals!!.”

FROM THE CLUB TO CELIA

The best quality of Celia, and one of the biggest reasons she was selected as a project athlete as well is the fact that ever since we can remember she has literally been running an 800m pb every single year! And she did not disappoint this year. Not only is she always up for a challenge but she is also always in a good cheerful mood, and this spreads like a fire to those surrounding her. If her progress is but an indication of what is to come, she is sure to set a new 800m pb once again in 2017 as she heads to USA. We wish her all the best!
