EasyEquities Born2Run Athletics Club

Aspiration. Inspiration. Excellence.

Development

EasyEquities Born2Run is keenly focused on “adult athlete development” – offering assistance to adult athletes who lack the resources they require to train, race and compete effectively.  By providing athletes with travel, financial and coaching support, the club hopes to make a difference in the lives of its members, and to inspire a community focused on nurturing athletic talent.

Going forward, the club’s development initiative will be managed by Bob Norris within EasyEquities Born2Run East London.  Bob will be identifying a team of young talent with a view to assisting each athlete to reach their full potential.  The development team is proudly supported by club sponsors EasyEquities and PUMA South Africa.  

A very BIG thank you to each of our sponsors and club partners for their involvement in this outstanding initiative!
