Club Northwest has funds available for Club members seeking financial assistance to compete in events that help them reach their high-performance goals. This funding is primarily dedicated to athletes focused on qualifying for or competing at the level of the Olympic trials or a national championship. Funding is available for any race that allows them to compete at this level.

Below are the Club’s A and B standards for earning funding. The A standard can earn an athlete up to $500 per event, while meeting the B standard can earn them up to $250 per event. If you have run the C standard, feel free to contact us, but note that this does not guarantee funding.

Athletes must provide proof of performance within the last 2 years. Athletes must use performances from the distance for which they seek funding or the next longer or shorter distance. For example, if your seek funding to compete in the 5,000m, past times from the 3,000m and 10,000m are valid. Equivalent times within the same range (e.g., a converted 2-mile performance) are also valid. Athletes are limited to two events per year, though we consider exceptions as our budget allows.

For the marathon specifically, some leniency may apply as the budget allows and subject to discretion of the CNW events committee and coaches. Funding is not available to participants of our Marathon Program.

To apply, please fill out our high-performance competition form.
