Annual Awards

The very best of Scottish athletics is celebrated at our Awards Dinner each year.

Laura Muir was named as Scottish Athlete of the Year for 2016 – making it two-in-a-row for the 1500m Commonwealth Record holder.

The 23-year-old had a stellar 12 months including winning the overall Diamond Race, finishing seventh at her first Olympics and breaking the British Record held by Dame Kelly Holmes not once but twice.

Muir headed a short-list of no fewer than eight athletes which featured seven who went to the Rio Olympics including relay medallist Eilidh Doyle, Scottish Record breakers Andy Butchart and Lynsey Sharp; marathon top 10 finisher Callum Hawkins; European medallist Steph Twell and comeback star Eilish McColgan plus GB hill runner Andy Douglas.
