2024: A Summer of sport - supporting your club image

Here at England Athletics, we can't wait for the Olympic and Paralympic Games this summer, and we want to help you share that excitement with your athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers!

Say thank you with the Regional Volunteer Awards

This summer isn't just about world class competition, but also about enjoying our fantastic sport closer to home - a sport which would not be possible without the dedicated support of volunteers.

Our fantastic network of 1500+ clubs, RunTogether groups, and member bodies keep our sport thriving at grassroots and community level and we want to celebrate their valuable contributions. All you have to do is submit a nomination outlining what makes your volunteer so great!
