jogscotland announces 2020 Awards shortlist

Achievement and dedication doesn't stop 'in a year like no other'

jogscotland has just announced the candidates shortlisted for the 4J Studios jogscotland Awards 2020.

Throughout lockdown and beyond, jogscotland’s groups and leaders have remained committed to building and supporting their communities. Jog leaders developed ‘daily exercise’ challenges and scavenger hunts for their groups, shared selfies and supported each other at a distance of 2m or more.

A spokesperson for jogscotland said: “2020 has been a year like no other, when achievements were virtual, friendships were digital, and uncertainty was everywhere. But despite it all, the jogscotland community has grown stronger than ever.”

She added: “We’re thrilled to be able to celebrate just some of the people who have made sure that this year will be remembered for good reasons as well as bad, the folk who went out of their way to stay active, keep others active, and to help take care of the physical and mental wellbeing of Scotland.”

This year’s Annual Awards will be different to those that have come before. Rather than gathering together for the ceremony, this year’s celebrations – part of the 4J Studios scottishathletics Awards – will be held online. The Awards will be broadcast on Saturday, 10 October on the scottishathletics YouTube channel.
