RUNNER RAISING FUNDS

Monday, May 16, 2011 ■ THE LONDON FREE PRESS – Brandon Laan is chasing the dream of representing Canada and London at the 2012 Olympic Games, but in the meantime he has founded his own business targeted at avid runners like himself.

Runners Feed Ltd. was established in February and operates free running clinics and a website and is organizing an upcoming road race.

The website www.runnersfeed.com provides runners with articles, reviews, race coverage, blogs, instructional videos, playlists, nutritional information and coaching services.

Laan was born and raised in London and graduated from the University of Western Ontario, where he captained both the cross-country and track and field teams.

He went to Hawaii Pacific University on a running scholarship in 2006 and earned a graduate degree in communication.

He returned to London in 2010 to begin coaching cross-country at Western and won the GoodLife Toronto Marathon last year.

Laan is organizing the Runners Feed 10K on Aug. 21. The race will raise funds for the Sunshine Foundation.
