The Scottish Athletics and Jog Scotland Annual Awards dinner is to be held on October 26 at the Marriott Hotel, Glasgow, the governing body has confirmed.

The event, which pays tribute to all the Scottish Athletics coaches, officials and athletes, will once again be hosted by presenter and reporter Alison Walker.

“It is great to be coming back again to host the Scottish Athletics and Jog Scotland Annual Awards dinner following a very successful evening last year,” commented Walker.

“I remember Lynsey Sharp won Kukri Athlete of the Year for the second successive year and, shortly after the Paralympics, David Weir was a highly suitable – and entertaining – ‘Guest of Honour’.

“I am looking forward to this year’s event and Scottish performances at the World Champs, together with a large number of athletes setting Commonwealth Games standards, offers a lot of promise for next year. I can’t wait until the Commonwealth Games.”

Tickets are priced at £40 per person and are available by contacting Mary Anderson on 0131 476 7330 or via email at
