Teesdale Pink Ladies, Run in Chester-le-Street and Durham Mums on the Run have all been nominated for their contribution to physical activity along with Consett Run England who’s coach Ian Young has been nominated for coach of the year.

The awards are a fantastic way to highlight the work of local clubs and groups in the County Durham area and we're delighted to see so many Run England groups involved!
