The jogscotland Annual Awards will be presented on Saturday 29 October at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow, as part of the 4J Annual Awards Dinner. The night will see the very best of both scottishathletics and jogscotland celebrated, with the event hosted by Bryan Burnett.
Our Guests of Honour this year will be none other than Geoff Wightman and Katharine Merry, two of the voices of athletics in Britain and beyond. The pair are renowned for commentating together on track and field events all over the world – with Geoff particularly in the spotlight this year as he commentated on son Jake’s World Championship 1500m win in Oregon in the summer.
We received an incredible 171 nominations for this year’s jogscotland awards, across the four categories – huge thanks to everybody who took the time to make a nomination. Shortlists will be announced in the coming weeks and we’ll look forward to celebrating the recipients of our Jog Leader of the Year, Group of the Year, 20th Anniversary Achiever of the Year, and SAMH Mental Wellbeing awards.
It’ll also be the chance to reflect on an incredible year for athletics and running in Scotland, with elite Scottish athletes bringing home medals from the World Champs, Commonwealth Games and European Champs – and of course the many achievements of jogscotland members, achieving their own targets with the help of jog leaders all over the country.
Tickets are on sale now at a price of £50 per head, via the link above.
