Services to Athletics and Running 2024

Regional Volunteer Awards 2023 - Services to Athletics and Running

This is our lifetime achievement category and without many of these people contributing like they have, the state of athletics and running wouldn’t be anywhere nearly as good as it is now.

This award celebrates volunteers who have been involved for a minimum of 15 years and have had a huge impact on running, athletics, clubs, and the local community. It is an opportunity to thank some truly remarkable volunteers who have designated a large part of their lives to athletics and running.
