Comps Pic.jpg


Club Northwest has funds available for Club members that would like financial help competing in events that help them reach their high performance goals. This funding is primarily dedicated to athletes that have a focus on making/competing at the level of the Olympic trials or a US championship. Athletes can use this funding for any race that allows them to compete at this level. Below are the Club’s A and B standards for earning funding. By meeting the A standard an athlete can earn up to $500 per event, while meeting the B standard can earn them up to $250 per event. As a general rule athletes are limited to 2 events per year, however exceptions can be made if the Club budget allows. To apply, please fill out the following form;

gear packages

club northwest brooks elite team


Every January Club Northwest awards 20 athletes gear packages from Brooks. This includes 5 pairs of trainers, 2 racing shoes (spikes or flats), 1 warmup top, 1 warmup bottom, 1 long sleeve shirt, 1 short sleeve shirt, and 2 pairs of shorts. The awarded athletes then pick which specific items they want from Brooks’s online store that fill these categories. If an athlete is awarded this package, they are required to race in Brooks/CNW gear 100% of time. If this does not work the package will be awarded to another athlete. To apply, fill out the following form by the January deadline;
