Our 4J Annual Awards Dinner is coming up next month – and we anticipate high demand for tables and tickets.
We confirmed recently the Guests of Honour for our celebration in Glasgow on Saturday 29 October.
In 2022 it will be a ‘double act’ with Geoff Wightman and Katharine Merry, two of the voices of athletics in Britain and beyond, attending our big night at the Hilton Hotel.
And we have started to publish short-lists for the various categories with the nominees revealed last week for club, coach, volunteer and Official.
Geoff and Katharine will help us present our Athlete of the Year award and other accolades.
It’s certain to be a highly entertaining evening with Bryan Burnett once again our capable host and tickets (priced £50 per person) are now on sale online.
Stadium commentator/coach Geoff is no stranger to these shores, of course, having served as our chief executive at one stage and his fame spread far and wide this summer when commentating in Oregon on his son Jake’s superb World Champs Men’s 1500m gold.
Olympic 400m medallist Merry broke new ground when she became the first in-stadium female commentator at the Olympics last year and Katharine has huge admiration for the sport in Scotland as well as our jogscotland programme.
The 4J Annual Awards reflect, acknowledge and recognise the sport beyond simply the big names with presentations to Coaches, Clubs, Volunteers and Officials.
