This year the awards will be given to the winners personally in their region ahead of the Triathlon England AGM.
Sarah Taylor-Hough, Director Western Region said “This year’s awards have been about being influential and what has been done for grassroots multisport and triathlon rather than being the best and the uppermost level. As a result we have had more nominations than ever before. Interestingly the winners have not necessarily been the highest qualified or longest standing but the ones that have made a significant contribution and offered inspiration which is what grassroots multisport and triathlon is all about.”
There is still time to book on to this year’s AGM and Workshop day. You can find more information here.
