LME funding announcement

London Marathon Events has announced it will offer funding to 30 of the UK’s best endurance runners for 2022 as part of its continued commitment to supporting distance running in this country.

And it is good to see no fewer than four Scots will benefit from the LME grants – Andy Butchart, Luke Caldwell, Steph Davis and Canada-based Sarah Inglis.

Andy and Steph of course competed at the Olympics on the track and in the marathon while Luke’s recent marathon debut gave him the qualifying standard for Team Scotland for the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.

Scotland-based Kristian Jones, the GB and Wales international, is also on the list of those supporteby LME.

The initiative provides direct support to athletes who sit just outside the funding programmes of British Athletics.

Now in its fourth year, the scheme has been an incredible success with 11 of the 30 athletes funded last year making Team GB at the Tokyo Olympic Games.
