The Vikings Elite Athlete

Development Fund


At our 2001 Annual General Meeting Kelly Roberts was awarded the first grant under the Vikings Elite Athlete Development Fund. The purpose of the fund is to assist athletes who have the potential to break into the elite level of open competition.

In 2005 a sub-committee has undertaken the task of updating the criteria for membership of the VEADF. The main difference being there are now three levels of membership - Gold, Silver and Bronze. There are also new criteria for cross-country and mountain runners.

If you satisfy the criteria as set out below you are invited to apply in writing for membership of the VEADF. Members of the VEADF will be listed on this page.
