Who is the NN Running Team

The brainchild of Global Sports Communication director Jos Hermens, the formation of the NN Running Team, is viewed as one of the most innovative and ground-breaking developments in athletics. Always 100 per cent committed to providing the best care and management of his athletes, Jos believes the Team will help professionalise the sport as the athletes will have access to the very best coaching, medical care and other athlete support services. By improving performances on the world-class stage, it is also hoped the profile of the athletes will improve, allowing them to flourish into household names. Among some of the leading athletes who feature as part of the NN Running Team include; Olympic Marathon champion Eliud Kipchoge, Kenenisa Bekele, the all-time world number two marathoner, two-time World Half-Marathon champion Geoffrey Kamworor and former World Half-Marathon record holder Florence Kiplagat.
