National Volunteer Award 2008 winners

England Athletics National Awards 2008England Athletics has held its annual awards to honour those involved in the sport throughout the country.  The ceremony saw 200 people including Olympic athletes gathering to mark the annual awards and inaugural England Athletics Hall of Fame event.

Much of the work done in athletics is carried out by volunteers, whether this is coaching, officiating, or helping out in the clubs and competitions throughout England. So while athletes were among those to receive awards at the ceremony at the National Motorcycle Museum the event was an important occasion for recognising the vitally important work done by these people. 

As well as rewarding the outstanding contributions made to athletics by each of the winners the awards also signify the importance to the sport of the contributions made by many individuals, clubs and groups within each category.
