Buy tickets for the Annual Awards dinner via the scottishathletics events pages
It’s that time again! Each year we gather together to celebrate the very best of jogscotland at our Annual Awards – the unsung heroes, the great groups, the inspiring leaders.
This year’s awards will presented as part of the FPSG scottishathletics and jogscotland Awards, held at the Hilton Hotel, Glasgow, on 3 November, with Guest of Honor Dame Kelly Holmes. It’s always a brilliant night out as we get out of our running kits, into our glad rags, and celebrate our achievements through the year. With the jogscotland categories presented alongside scottishathletics awards, there’s also the chance to rub shoulders with some of the nation’s top sporting talent.
And we need your help to make it happen! Our awards are all based on nominations received from the jogscotland community, and you can make yours now using the online form above.
There are four award categories: two individual awards, one group award, and one award which can be for either an individual or a group. For all nominations please be as comprehensive as possible to help the judging panel with their decision. All finalists will receive one complimentary ticket to the award ceremony. The winner in each category will also be awarded with a trophy.
