10 Male, 10 Female Contestants For Sunday’s New Balance New Canaan Fresh Foam Sprint


New Balance is introducing next Wednesday the new 980 running shoe, which features its latest Fresh Foam technology.

And New Balance New Canaan wants one FCIAC male and female track athlete to be the first on their blocks to own a pair.

On Sunday night we will be holding the Fresh Foam Sprint. We have 10 male and 10 female contestants (we contacted every league coach to select a member of their team). The contest is simple: There will be a 24-hour vote, from 7 p.m. until 7 p.m. on Monday. The male and female winner will each receive a pair of the new shoes, to be presented during New Canaan New Balance’s Fresh Foam party next Thursday night at the store from 5-9 p.m.

Here are the selected contestants:


Franklin Bartley, Norwalk
