The Runner of the Year award (and indeed the runner up award) are awarded each year to someone to recognise their contribution to the club or achievement in the previous 12 months. It may recognise someone who has given long service, someone who has "gone the extra mile" for the club or someone who has made a significant improvement in their running.

A runner up award is also made and whilst its often made to a person of the opposite sex to the winner of the Runner of the Year award, that is not a pre requisite of winning the award

The Runner of the Year award is open to each and every member of the club and members are encouraged to promote their nominees in confidence to any member of the committee through out the year for consideration
