Athletics Weekly, supported by Ronhill, and assisted by Hilly and Ridgeway Textiles, is proud to announce the new Athletics Weekly Club & Club Ambassador awards.
Following the success of the 2011 AW Clubs Awards, also supported by Ronhill we wish to reinforce our joint commitment to grassroots club athletics and running, with a new monthly awards scheme culminating in our annual awards to be announced at the end of each year.
Each month there are 2 awards;
1. Club of the month
The Club which, in the opinion of our panel, best deserves recognition for its recent performance either as the best Running, Track & Field or Development club will be featured in Athletics Weekly, be entered into the Ronhill Hall of Fame and rewarded with £150 of Ronhill kit and trophy.
2. Club Ambassador
This award is for the unsung club official, coach, athlete or supporter who is at the heartbeat of every club and who deserves recognition for their loyalty, energy and contribution to that club. Each winner will be rewarded with a feature article in Athletics Weekly, entry into the Ronhill Hall of Fame and £100 Ronhill voucher and trophy.
Each monthly winner will also automatically be entered into our 2012 annual awards.
Every club and club member is invited to register their choice for club and/or ambassador on our website at www.athleticsweekly.com and each proposal will be reviewed by our judges for both the monthly and also the annual awards.
The awards will be published in AW each month.
AW and Ronhill look forward to presenting these awards and is part of our campaign to support grassroots club athletics and running.
