The UK's Best Running Club 2008 Award (sponsored by New Balance)

Running clubs are a crucial and valued part of the running scene. Over the years club membership has spurred on countless runners to better fitness and great racing achievements by giving them access to competition, expert training advice, encouragement and mutual support.

We want you to help us select Britain's best running club.

That club doesn't necessarily have to be the biggest or most successful, although those could be contributory elements. It could also include any of these other factors:

The winning club will win 50 sets of the latest New Balance Kit (could differ to that shown)
  • Playing a pivotal role in the local community, perhaps demonstrated by a commitment to race organisation in the area, training programmes or other social events.
  • An outstanding record of race success in relation to the size of the club.
  • A positive record or attracting beginners and juniors to trial the club then nurturing them through the ranks into regular members.

You can nominate clubs for this award either via email or by posting your nomination(s) to the following address:

Best Running Club 2008 Award
33 Broadwick Street
London
W1F 0DQ

Please be sure to include the following details in your nomination:

  • The club name
  • Your connection with the club
  • Your reasons for nominating them for this award
  • Your name, email address and daytime phone number
A carefully-selected expert panel will then decide on a winner, and the winning club will receive 50 sets of New Balance Kit (25 women's and 25 men's) comprising shorts/tights, tees, jackets and shoes.
