Elite Runner Management LLC (ERM) is a small but selective sports agency representing professional athletes in the planning, arranging and negotiating of competition schedules, contracts, and sponsorships. We represent athletes with talent, who are hungry to succeed, and who are committed to the process. By deliberately staying small and selective, the agency is able to give to each of its athletes the personal attention he or she needs to pursue a successful and satisfying professional career. And ERM athletes have been extremely successful. They have raced in the Olympic Games, made national teams, and have won major championships at multiple distances from 5K to the marathon. Its athletes have achieved top results in races throughout the world and represented their country in multiple international competitions. From its inception, the purpose of Elite Runner Management has not only been to negotiate endorsements and shoe sponsorships, but to empower its athletes to achieve their personal best, both on the race course and in their personal lives.
