TRAC Young Persons Sports Development Fund



Thanet Roadrunners are proud to announce the launch of the Thanet Roadrunners AC Young Persons Sports Development Fund aimed at supporting young sports people in the Thanet area with an eye towards the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and beyond. The club has set aside a substantial fund of money to extend over the next 3 years and will be inviting applications from young people seeking funding to put towards specific competing, equipment or training costs.


The club will be focusing on young sports people up to, and including, the age of 18 who preferably live, train and are educated in Thanet and the fund is intended to cover a wide range of sports, not just the road running and athletics already supported by the club.


Applications will be scrutinised by the Development Fund Committee who will fully explore applications by talking to the young sportsperson, their coaches and other people involved prior to making any award from the fund.


Club Chairman Mark Foster said “As the long time established running club in Thanet we are delighted to announce the new initiative giving support to the young sports people of Thanet.  Who knows, our grant might just help to discover the next Paula Radcliffe or Tom Daly.”


Interested applicants are invited to download an application form and supporting documents from the club website,, or to contact Club Chairman Mark Foster on 01843 584909 for further details.
