Community Project of the Year 2024

Regional Volunteer Awards 2023 - Community Project of the Year

This award provides affiliated clubs, RunTogether groups and associated partners a platform to highlight the projects they have put in place that benefit the community.

This could be a project targeted at a specific audience, a project that has raised funds for a local charity, supported deprived individuals or engaged with different sectors of the community. This award is more than athletics and running – it is about how projects linked to athletics and running have had a positive impact on the community.

Community Project of the Year will have a live vote for 2024! After the regional panel have worked through nominations, the top nominations in both of these categories will go on the England Athletics website for a LIVE vote. Further details will be updated nearer the time.
