New Balance Runner of the Week returns in 2018!

We are so excited to announce the return of our New Balance Runner of the Week program! Starting mid-April we’ll be highlighting our runners and walkers up until race day and sharing their stories with you.

To be featured as one of our New Balance Runners of the Week, simply tag us in your photos on social media. Make sure to use #freepmarathon #RunneroftheWeek so we know to enter you into the drawing. The more times you tag us in posts, the better. We’re looking for inspiring stories, awesome training pictures and dedicated runners and walkers. Or, if you’d like to nominate someone for our New Balance Runner of the Week, just email lyanuszesk@michigan.com with the subject line “ROTW Nomination.”

Each New Balance Runner of the Week will receive an awesome prize pack, to include:

  • Beanie from New Balance Detroit
  • 1 Sprinter Stick From The Stick
  • 1 SPIbelt and 1 SPIbeam item from SPIbelt

In addition to these great prizes, each New Balance Runner of the Week will have their story featured in the Detroit Free Press online and in Sunday’s paper. Read all about last year’s winners here.
