Rabbit, a California-based running apparel company for men and women, revealed that marathoner Lauren Jimison signed on as the newest member of its RadRabbitPro team.

Jimison, an 11-time NAIA All American and five-time Individual Champion during her career at Azusa Pacific University, said, “My dream has always been to be supported by companies I have a genuine relationship with and, with Rabbit, it’s more than that; they’re my people!”

Jimison holds a PR of 2:33:20 at her signature distance, a mark she will work to lower this season as she targets the USATF Marathon Championships. She will be guided in that effort by her longtime coach, Andrew Kastor, and supported in her training by the Sacramento Running Association.

Rabbit Co-founder Jill Deering commented, “One of the most rewarding aspects of Rabbit is being able to support these young professional athletes as they pursue their running dreams. Our Pros are incredibly talented, but they also are good, kind people, who we treat as family. I am ecstatic to officially welcome Lauren into the Rabbit family.”
