We want YOU to support Rhode Island’s Newest Track Team (via social media)

As sub-elite post-collegiate athletes, finding sponsorship money to continue a career is far from easy. Many national caliber athletes around the globe struggle to find funding for their athletic endeavors once the rug of the NCAA is swept out from underneath them.

Consequently, a crucial part of post-collegiate running for many of us is creating a personal brand to share our narratives –and some stuff from the people who sponsor us–with friends, family, and the running world through mediums like social media and blogs. We want to make you feel like part of the chase for Olympic Standards and US trials, through every 10 second PR and every Youtube-worthy steeplechase fail.

With that in mind, the Ocean State Athletic Club was founded by athletes in Rhode Island–Shane Quinn, Jordan Mann, Liam Hillery–to help athletes chase, fund, and document their athletic dreams.

If you’ve been invited to this page, please feel free to “like” it, share it, or to check out our website/blog, and learn more about us. If you feel compelled to invite your entire friend’s list to like the page, we certainly won’t stop you. Every little bit of exposure helps, and it would mean the world to us.

So it begins

Today the Ocean State Athletic Club has officially taken off! While we are already training diligently for the upcoming year–the first in some of our postcollegiate careers–we are finally beginning to organize for sponsorships, donations, and publicity. A small amount of support would go a long way for athletes of our level, so hopefully we can pull something off for our group here in Rhody!
