Our 4J Annual Awards celebration Dinner is coming up next month – and we’re keen to make you aware that tickets are still available.
It promises to be a superb evening in Glasgow on Saturday 29 October with our Guests of Honour for 2022 the double act of Geoff Wightman and Katharine Merry.
The Athlete of the Year categories always command attention but the 4J Awards Dinner is also very much an occasion to celebrate, recognise and acknowledge nominees and winners across categories for clubs, coaches, Officials and volunteers.
Tickets are on sale via the online link at £50 per person. There is a provisional closing date on these mid-October so please don’t delay if you plan to join us on Saturday 29 October.
All the categories look extremely competitive after an amazing year which for our elite athletes featured that unique opportunity to compete at three major champs – World Champs, Commonwealth Games and European Champs.
Eilish McColgan, Laura Muir and Jake Wightman did more than just compete in Oregon, Birmingham and Munich, of course. They beat a regular path to the podium.
Unsurprisingly, these three are our contenders for the 4J Scottish Athlete of the Year award and it might well require a photo-finish verdict to split them!
It looks close, too, for the Para Athlete of the Year Award with contenders Sean Frame, Samantha Kinghorn and Melanie Woods all having excelled at Birmingham 2022.
