9th June 2018 will mark our 6th birthday and for the first time we will be celebrating our birthday on the actual anniversary of our first run back in 2012. We had 171 runners on that day and were assisted by 25 volunteers - How we have grown!.
Each year we celebrate our birthday with our annual awards event, we have a fancy dress theme and we encourage our community to bring along cake/goodies for sharing on the day.
One of our awards is nominated by the Community of Tilgate parkrun
'Tilgate parkrun's Outstanding Achievement of the year award'
The award now in its third year is open to all parkrunners attending Tilgate parkrun whether they be runners or volunteers and with our attendances cresting 600 a week we are sure that there are some individuals amongst us, with an inspirational story or achievement that should be acknowledged.
We have created a survey for you to submit your nominations to us, you may submit more than 1 nomination and it is not necessary to nominate the same person multiple times. The survey comprises just 5 questions and shouldn't take too long to complete, but do try and make sure you capture the reason for your nomination clearly.
The closing date for nominations is Sunday 20th May, so have a think about those around you that have inspired / continue to inspire or have just been fantastic over the last 12 months and get nominating.
The Survey can be accessed with the link below
Once the deadline has been reached, the survey will be closed and the Tilgate parkrun management team will review the nominations received and will decide the overall winner.
A full list of nominees will be announced with the other award finalists at Tilgate parkrun on 2nd June during the pre-run brief. The other awards this year are
Tilgate parkrun parkrunner of the year
Tilgate parkrun Junior parkrunner of the year

Our awards ceremony will be on 9th June before our run starting at 0845 am. So be sure to arrive earlier than normal on our Birthday - details of theme, fancy dress, cake baking, etc will follow shortly.
Good luck to all our nominators and nominees and we very much look forward to receiving and reading your submissions and then the tough challenge of the selection process.
