Run England Awards - your chance to say thanks!
19 July 2013
Making a nomination for the Run England Awards is your chance to thank those people whose efforts help create your experiences as runners and running group members.
The awards are held within the the England Athletics regional and national awards and you can get your nominations in at www.englandathletics.org/RE-Awards-2013.
We'd love to hear about your leader, your running group, or your project so that we, and other people, can celebrate everything that sees Run England making a difference to people's lives across England.
There are three categories of award, with each being presented in all of the nine England Athletics regions. The regional winners are then put forward as a shortlist for the national awards which will this year be held on Saturday 19 October as part of the England Athletics National Awards & Hall of Fame Ceremony at Hilton Metropole, NEC.
