Contribution to Athletics and Running 2024

Contribution to Athletics and Running graphic

This category is in place to celebrate specific activity that is taking place in a club or group setting and/or to highlight opportunities provided by an Affiliated Club, Voluntary Event Provider, RunTogether Group, or an associated partner (for example County Association or Regional Council). You can highlight individuals as well. This is a great outlet to highlight the impact a Run Leader has had for example.  

This category can celebrate youth set ups, seniors, masters, inclusion and events/initiatives. Great nominations may explore steps taken to increase participation, provide quality experiences, support specific disciplines and understand what people/clubs/groups/events are doing to provide athletics and running opportunities. 

Listen to what our Club Support Manager Richard Ayling says about the category and how to nominate.

Do you want to enhance your nomination?
