The Scottish Borders Athletics Development Group (SBADG) has received a prestigious national award for its partnership working.

The group, which includes representatives from Borders Sport and Leisure, sports governing bodies and clubs, was named Partnership of the Year at the annual Scottish Athletics Awards held in Glasgow.

Instrumental in developing initiatives including a coach mentoring scheme, the organisation of the Borders Schools Cross-country Championship and assisting with Run, Jump and Throw programmes, the SBADG works with partners and stakeholders to provide opportunities for athletes, coaches, volunteers and clubs to participate in athletics activities.
